Maybe I've been under a rock but I didn't know a referendum was a choice.

I thought it was going to be a yay or nay situation.

Yay or nay may have ended up in litigation. Supposedly a referendum is much cleaner.

It's the step in the right direction but yeah I just wish this was done already.

It does seem to take forever and things are still unresolved because who knows how the public will vote on anything...

"Still unresolved" is exactly what I'm tired of. The last decade has been nothing but 'two more weeks' and we'll finally have a resolution on the Coyotes situation. I'll have as many posts as Dback by the time this is over.

Government moves S-L-O-W-L-Y! I have helped with pushing for laws in NV, and it can take decades to get something passed. I think this is moving relatively fast for a project of this size.

This reminds me of the time that the East Valley was trying to get a Cardinals stadium built. Mesa was first and tried it on its own (the Riverview property) but a NIMBY lady shot that down, then Tempe and Mesa both tried (the Rio Salado plan) but Phoenix argued about the flight path and helped kill it, and then Tempe tried on its own (near the 202 and Center Pkwy) but Phoenix helped kill that one with their "flight plan" argument as well. The very next Cardinals game a plane flew so close to Sun Devil Stadium that we thought it was going to crash into it. It was so crazy. Yeah, the flight path was a real concern - as a matter of fact, Tempe built a few huge apartment complexes in basically the same spot they had wanted a stadium. Makes zero sense.

Oh, look, another exciting development in the Coyotes Saga. You guys saw one of the minority owners was arrested the other day too, right?

If this franchise didn't have bad luck, it may not have any luck at all. SMH.

Hopefully, they are able to resolve this and moving forward they can be the Arizona (minus Glendale and Phoenix) Coyotes. ;) #badblood #citypolitics

There are apartments already basically across the street
Also - on the local morning show, they said a similar residential development that Tempe built in 2013 was praised by the City of Phoenix. Just further shows that this is all political. Phoenix is trying to shoot down an entertainment center that would take away from their downtown-centric stuff.
