Arena deliberation schedule

1 Comment (Leave Comment)

Many thanks to Councilmember Tim Burgess for posting the schedule of upcoming committee hearings in which we will discuss the arena deal. I am reprinting the schedule here for your reference. Check back soon for more on the arena.

From Councilmember Burgess’s blog:

City Council’s Government Performance & Finance Committee will follow as we consider the proposed sports arena:

Thursday, May 31, 9:30 a.m. Mayor’s staff presents proposal overview
Wednesday, June 6, 11 a.m. Mayor’s staff presents financial aspects of proposal
Thursday, June 7, 2 p.m. Mayor’s staff presents transportation study and future of KeyArena, followed by a panel discussion with Port, labor and industry representatives
Wednesday, June 20, 9:30 a.m. Discussion with Chris Hansen
Thursday, July 5, 2 p.m. Committee deliberations
Friday, July 6, 9:30 a.m. Committee deliberations
Wednesday, July 18, 9:30 a.m. Committee deliberations, possible vote
Wednesday, August 1, 9:30 a.m. Committee deliberations, possible vote
Monday, August 6, 2 p.m. Full Council consideration and vote (tentative)
Monday, August 13, 2 p.m. Full Council consideration and vote (tentative)

All the meetings listed above will take place in City Council Chambers, 600 Fourth Avenue, second floor. Public comment at Committee meetings will be limited in duration in order to allow for consideration of unrelated Committee business. A separate public hearing will be scheduled in July to receive public opinion on the arena proposal. The date, time and location of the public hearing will be announced with a minimum of 30 days notice.

The Council accepts written public comments at any time.

I would encourage you to oppose the new arena. Some believe that 3,500 represents the will of the voters.
Not this one. Experience shows that projected costs to the tax payer are always overrun. Basketball in Seattle would be great – let us be creative and find a venue to retrofit not use another facility that is used part of the year.
