Re: Sleep Train arena fighting to add entertainment acts
The Sacramento City Council has already shown its willingness to open its bank account for the development of a new downtown sports arena. It's now showing a willingness to go to court for the project as well.
By a 7-2 vote, the Sacramento City Council agreed Tuesday night to join the Sacramento Kings in negotiating with the owner of the Macy's furniture and men's clothing store at the Downtown Plaza over the purchase of the soon-to-be vacant property.
That building, situated near the eastern end of the mall at 600 K St., is needed by the Kings and the city to build a proposed $448 million arena at the mall.
