LEXINGTON, Ky. (WHAS11) – The mayor of Lexington says he’s backing away from his ambitious plan to remake Rupp Arena in downtown Lexington.

Mayor Gray says he will suspend his $350 million renovation plan for Rupp and the Lexington Convention Center.

He says the University of Kentucky is also interested in a scaled back renovation and is no longer backing the full scale plan.

Mayor Gray says he plans for innovations in downtown Lexington around Rupp will move forward.
