The City of Phoenix is holding a series of public meetings to determine the future of renovations at Talking Stick Resort Arena.

“What I think we’d really like to get across to [the public] is this is a city owned building, has been funded since its original inception by tourist dollars,” according to Christine Mackay, Director of Community and Economic Development for Phoenix.

The proposed renovation seeks $150 million from the city, and it would be paid for as it always has been – by tourism taxes. One percent comes from hotel rooms and two percent from rental cars.
