Latest Arena Developments - CORRECTION

** Corrected from earlier e-mail with updated committee meeting information **
You have written in the past regarding the proposed sports arena. I am writing to provide you with an update. 
At its meeting earlier today, the Seattle City Council voted 6 to 2 to approve the three-party Memorandum of Understanding between the City of Seattle, King County, and ArenaCo, the investment group headed up by Chris Hansen. 
Because the Seattle City Council made changes to the MOU previously approved by the King County Council, the newly amended MOU must return to the King County Council for discussion and vote. 
The King County Council's Budget and Fiscal Management Committee anticipates taking up the MOU at a special meeting on Tuesday, October 2, beginning at 9:30 a.m. 
I was pleased to vote in support of the initial MOU when it was before the King County Council. I now look forward to reviewing the changes made by the Seattle City Council and am optimistic that the King County Council will vote to approve these changes. 
Again, thank you for contacting me. Please feel free to contact me in the future at (206) 296-1001 or You can also find me on Facebook.
