Arizona Coyotes representatives met with Mesa’s highest-ranking official at least twice in the past month to discuss Sloan Park as a possible site for a new arena, according to city emails and a team spokesman.
“Yes, we have had discussions with the city of Mesa. We are exploring multiple options for a new arena in the Valley and Sloane (sic) Park has been raised as one,” Coyotes CEO and President Anthony LeBlanc said in a written statement.
According to city emails, Ahron Cohen, the Coyotes general counsel, met with Mesa City Manager Chris Brady on Feb 9. After their meeting, Cohen reached out to Brady to confirm information about Mesa’s transportation privilege tax and hotel tax.
