New Council Will Measure Arena Project's Success

A day before Sacramento's last vote on the new arena, comes a new way to measure the project's success.

The mayor and Kings leadership have announced a new community advisory council to make sure, as Mayor Kevin Johnson puts it, the new arena will work for everyone.

The council, made up of community, business and faith leaders, wants 60 percent of construction bids to be local, with small businesses getting 20 percent of the work.

The members will also make sure that sustainability comes to the forefront, and that $5 million in public arts are incorporated, including some of the pieces from Downtown Plaza.

The council will issue quarterly reports to the public on how things are going.

The city council votes tomorrow night on their $255 million arena subsidy.
