Statement from Councilwoman Felicita Mendoza on Talking Stick Resort Arena VoteStatement from Councilwoman Felicita Mendoza on Talking Stick Resort Arena Vote<div class="ExternalClassC061757812C74AFEA6CF9B0950B95860"><p>​"This evening the Phoenix City Council approved an agreement with the Phoenix Suns to renovate the Talking Stick Resort Arena. Before coming to my decision, I did a comprehensive review of the information received from staff. I toured the arena to see the areas that needed improvement firsthand and listened to feedback from the public meetings. I met with the Phoenix Suns to better understand their expenditures and with residents to hear their concerns regarding the use of funding. Ultimately, after this thorough investigation and hearing all of the public comments in favor of this proposal, I believe this agreement is in the best interest of the residents of District 8. This is why I voted to approve the plan to renovate the arena.<br></p><p>I want to thank all the residents, business owners, and community leaders who attended the public meetings or submitted comments to the City's website. I look forward to many more years with the Phoenix Suns."<br></p><p><br></p></div>1/24/2019 2:55:00 AMNick Valenzuela602-495-5405
