Councilman Steve Cohn announces today via e-mail:
The Sacramento FIRST Task Force is reviewing seven new proposals for an Entertainment & Sports Complex. The Task Force is also looking at the current Cal Expo proposal and the option of renovating Arco Arena.
The Task Force is forming an Advisory Committee of interested citizens that will supplement the task force. If you are interested in volunteering to serve on this advisory committee, please let me know by sending an email message to my District Director, Sue Brown, at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, January 8, 2010. Our understanding is that the commitment of time is approximately one meeting per month for about 3 months.
I don’t think anyone would disagree that this city needs the Sac Rag readership’s input in this project…

What would Laura do?
I think she’d push for 9 arenas. Why choose just one proposal?
You rule Nick! We all need more Monorail!
Glad to hear the idea of renovating Arco is on the table. As seen with Lambeau Field in Green Bay, it not always required to tear down and start over.
I was a season ticket holder for a couple years, and the things that bugged me most at ARCO was the crowded lower concourse and bathrooms. Both of these could be solved with an addition around the base of the arena to make room for restaurants, proper bathrooms, and space to walk. The arena itself just needs a little spruce up, and I suppose some way of adding box seats.
I always had the feeling that the Maloof’s previous analysis of renovating ARCO was biased to purposely make the case for a new arena. Hopefully the Maloof’s are rethinking this now.
