I’m at a loss to find a single word that describes the continuing saga related to the potential arena site.
Maybe our readers can help, but if they do we ask that they keep it clean.
It seems that some members of city council now want the city to tear down our convention center and make it the site of the new arena.
Many separate issues come to the fore now.
Let’s start with this one:
The city and developers have been working to construct or rebuild downtown hotels that are within 1,000 feet of the convention center. The private developers have been promised access to tax credits that are applicable to such projects if they are within 1,000 feet of a convention center.
If the city tears down the existing convention center and replaces it with an arena, what will happen to those developments? Will we end up with a downtown/convention/arena/cultural something-or-other facility?
We deserve better
