Sacramento arena plan goes to Planning Commission April 10

Published: Friday, Mar. 28, 2014 - 1:25 pm

Sacramento’s Planning and Design Commission is scheduled to vote on the planned downtown arena project at its April 10 meeting, the city announced today.

Among the issues scheduled for debate by the commission are the arena’s environmental impact report; the project’s design; a development agreement between the Kings and the city; guidelines for the 1.5 million square feet of development the Kings are planning around the arena; various zoning permits; and a plan for the Kings to construct seven electronic billboards around the city.

If the commission approves the project, it will be forwarded to the City Council in late April or early May. In addition to the development plans and environmental report, the council must also approve a proposal to commit $258 million in public money to the $448 million facility.
