City leaders, UK to meet to talk about Rupp Arena

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Lexington city leaders and the University of Kentucky are sitting down to talk about the future of Rupp Arena.

City leaders confirmed that mayor Jim Gray and UK president Eli Capilouto will meet Thursday, June 12.

A $351 million renovation of Rupp Arena and the convention center has been proposed, but the UK president sent a scathing letter to project officials for their decisions last month.

Capilouto claimed city leaders tried to blame UK for Kentucky lawmakers not securing funding for the project during the legislative session.
