Encourage the Seattle City Council to review Chris Hansen's updated arena plan
This petition had 16,375 supporters
On September 7th, Chris Hansen released a new and improved arena plan to bring back the Sonics. Hansen has offered to 100% privately finance three new venues: the SoDo Sports Arena, the Seattle Center Concert Venue, and the Seattle Center Amphitheater.
For nearly a decade the Seattle arena discussion has been focused around the future of KeyArena. "If Hansen builds in SODO, what happens to the Key?" The City now has the perfect solution: a 100% privately funded plan that will bring back the Sonics in SODO and build a world-class music/entertainment venue in Seattle.
Many cities across the nation would kill for this type of investment. Hansen's plan will bring back the Sonics (via a conditional street vacation), attract world-class entertainment personalities to Seattle, and completely prevent any disruption to the Port's operations (Lander Overpass = funded).....and this is coming all out of his own wallet.
The City of Seattle deserves this. This region deserves this. Our children deserve this. Let's bring back our Sonics.
We respectfully urge the Seattle City Council to consider Chris Hansen's updated arena plan.
