Architect of The Goat Farm confirms Preds as partner for Sumner County Ice Center

During the Gallatin Planning Commission’s Monday night meeting, John Sexton of Lose Design confirmed that the Nashville Predators are a partner in the potential Sumner County Ice Center.

The Nashville-based design company presented to the city and answered questions from some board members regarding the plan, location and traffic flow.

Phase One of the project includes the ice facility and hotels which are located in Sumner County and not in Gallatin city limits. That land will have to rezoned to commercial by the county at a later date.

Twenty percent of the space will be kept open to host outdoor events.

Multiple board members on the Zoom call expressed their excitement for the project and look forward to seeing it come to fruition as it will bring much needed tourism and economic to Gallatin and Sumner County.

For any other questions, there will be a meeting on Monday, Jan. 25 that will be open to the public.
