Council votes to restart arena talks with Flames

The ongoing new arena saga for the Calgary Flames has taken another turn. On Tuesday afternoon Calgary City Council voted to formally re-engage with the Flames on the possibility of building a new arena in Victoria Park.

Looking forward to taking the next steps and starting a conversation with the @nhlflames regarding what an entertainment district and event centre could look like for #Calgary. #yyc #yyccc

The Event Centre Assessment Committee (and Council as a whole) approved Terms of Reference for any negotiations, with the majority of them linking up thematically with the ongoing work the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation has been doing on planning for an Events and Cultural District.
