Seattle City Council committee approves revised arena agreement
Action moves legislation to Full Council for consideration on Sept. 24


Seattle – The City Council's Government Performance and Finance Committee voted 7-0 (with one abstention) this afternoon to approve a revised version of legislation containing the proposed agreement to build a new sports and entertainment arena. The legislation will be considered by the Full Council on Monday, Sept. 24.

“Today's vote moves us one step closer to a good deal for all the people of Seattle, not just sports fans,” said Councilmember Tim Burgess, Chair of the Government Performance and Finance Committee. “The new deal protects family-wage jobs and provides strong financial protections for taxpayers and city and county government. It also gives us an opportunity to begin an in-depth planning process about the future of the Seattle Center.”

The following documents contain more information on the revised agreement:

Seattle City Council meetings are cablecast and Webcast live on Seattle Channel 21 and on the City Council's website. Copies of legislation, Council meeting calendar, and archives of news releases can be found on the City Council website. Follow the Council on Twitter and on Facebook.
