Joint Council Hearing - Make your voice heard

On Thursday, July 19th at 5:30 pm, we have an unprecedented opportunity for our voices to be heard. Both the King County Council and Seattle City Council will meet at City Hall in a rare joint public meeting to discuss the Arena. This will be the only joint meeting of both Councils as they deliberate the Arena proposal. Please join us and urge the Councils to pass the Memorandum of Understanding and bring back our Sonics.

Public testimony is likely to be limited to one minute per person, so be prepared to be brief in your comments. You can sign up for testimony beginning at 5:00 pm, so make sure to get there early.

Please keep your comments respectful and allow other folks — even those with a different point of view — to speak freely. We want the Councils to see that we are enthusiastic and passionate about bringing the NBA and NHL to Seattle, but in order for our message to get across effectively we must be polite when opponents are speaking.

Finally, we encourage you to take public transportation to this event. Numerous bus routesserve the Seattle City Hall, and the Pioneer Square light rail stop is just one block away. Parking may be difficult.

RSVP for the Joint Council Hearing on our Facebook page.

Do you think we'll have a better idea how city council members stand after Thursday. It went pretty good with that county report. The port finally got owned and they stated that financing it all privately isn't economically feasible.

I think we would start hearing city council positions after the report from the bond analyst and debt capacity analyst they hired. I think those reports come back later this week, I think.
There will be a couple minor amendments to the MOU to resolve a couple open questions that the council will need to have answered in the next phase.
That may come together in the next week to 10 days.
We should have a good idea where people stand at that point.
