Arena Review Panel
Arena Review Panel Charge
The Arena Review Panel is requested to determine whether or not the proposal meets each of the principles stated below:
1) Existing General Fund resources are protected.
The City and the County provide critical public safety, health, educational, human services and other quality of life core services to the public. Any public‐private partnership should not impair the provision of those services directly or indirectly, by creating financial pressure on general resources.
2) The City and County should be significantly protected from any financial risks.
The public should not bear any significant financial risk from the public‐private partnership.
3) The partnership should result in an investment into the community and region.
The City and County each target its limited resources on providing core public services. The arena proposal should offer the City and County with a potential opportunity to leverage outside resources to further enhance the community and region, by creating a new entertainment venue and spurring job growth and economic activity in the process.
