Statement by Councilmember Tim Burgess regarding today’s arena ruling

Seattle City Councilmember Tim Burgess issued the following statement in response to today’s King County Superior Court ruling about the environmental review process for a new sports and entertainment arena:

“I applaud the court’s ruling today that allows the City and County to continue forward in our environmental review process as contemplated by the MOU. The City Council emphasized the importance of a robust environmental review in its deliberations last fall in order to acquire complete information about the impact of a new arena at various locations. On Monday morning the Council will receive a briefing on the various planning efforts underway related to the proposal to bring NBA basketball back to Seattle.”
