At the first of five Phoenix public meetings about a proposed renovation of Talking Stick Resort Arena, Phoenix resident Fred Linsenmeyer was the first to speak.

“When I listened to the news, they didn’t mention the tourist tax would pay for this,” he said. “I was under the assumption that the city taxpayers are going to pay for this.”

The 76-year-old Linsenmeyer pointed out that he came to the meeting because of that disinformation and wondered why it was even being held.

So, as a public service and also because the boss wanted it, The Athletic  hopes to address some of the misconceptions, and point out some of the potential benefits and shortcomings of the proposed deal between the city and the Phoenix Suns to renovate the building, which opened in 1992.
