QUICK FACTS ABOUT THE SONICS ARENA
Mitch is reporting that he Can confirm
@chrisdaniels5 report that an Arena deal has been finalized between Chris Hansen and Seattle City Council ...
I have been told that an official Chris Hansen statement is coming tomorrow morning. Hoping that he will join me on the show as well
Bulk of the deal was agreed upon Thursday (as we reported on Friday morning's show) & then i's dotted and t's crossed between then and now.
City Council Press Conference tomorrow at 9:30am to announce the deal. Unclear if every member will be there. After Seattle Council makes it official tomorrow at 9:30am press conference, Hansen will issue a statement.
I'm told that the official Seattle Council vote will be on Thursday - just a formality
The vote this Thursday is the committee vote which Burgess heads. The full Council vote (likely to be 6-3 or 7-2) will be likely the following week
For those asking: $40 million more going towards SODO traffic concern & another $7 million contributed to a fund to upgrade Key Arena.
