BANGOR, Maine (AP) — Officials in Bangor are growing more confident they will be able to find the public and private support needed to build a new 7,400-seat arena in the Maine city.

The Bangor Daily News says city councilors are expected to receive soon a final design for the arena from the architect and an estimated cost.

Initial estimates say the arena cost at least $45 million to $50 million.

If the city also decides to renovate and expand the Bangor Civic Center, it could add another $12 million to $15 million to the cost.
