Chamber Campaigns To Keep Arena In Natomas

The Natomas Chamber of Commerce today launched a campaign to “Keep the Arena in Natomas.”
The chamber is a partner in the Natomas ESC group which presented a proposal at City Hall yesterday for an arena and entertainment complex on the city-owned 100-acres located just north of the current Arco Arena. A press conference is set for 11 a.m. Saturday.
“Natomas needs representation in the discussion about where a new sports complex should be located,” said Marni Leger, chair of the chamber’s Keep the Arena in Natomas campaign.
Chamber officials today expressed disappointment in the NBA and Maloofs who announced support for a complex and costly proposal weeks before the Sacramento First task force was scheduled to provide recommendations to Mayor Kevin Johnson and public on March 11.
Said Leger, “In tight times, the more economical proposal to build a new arena in Natomas should be considered.”
