Arena construction would not start until both an NBA and NHL team are acquired. It includes no new taxes.
Is that accurate? That seems like a tall order to coordinate with two separate sports leagues when it's already tough enough to get a team, but to time it accordingly so this gets done seems tougher.
I keep hearing it's at least one.... who ever commits first (an NBA team or and NHL team), then construction begins. That does seem crazy difficult to try and coordinate acquiring both at the same time to pull off the arena plan.
Reports say that we need both NHL and NBA for them to break ground.
