In February, private investor Christopher Hansen presented to the city of Seattle and King County a proposal to construct a new arena in Seattle’s Stadium District with the ability to host NBA and NHL teams.

After negotiations between Hansen, County Executive Constantine and Mayor McGinn, an agreement was announced on May 16.The terms of the agreement outline King County’s role in the proposed arena project. The authorizing legislation was sent to the King County Council on May 22.

Tuesday’s committee meeting will be the first time the County Council will hear from Council analysts on the proposal.
