Flames arena ‘Plan B’ to be discussed at Calgary city council on Monday
City councillors are expected to discuss a proposal to build a replacement sports arena in Victoria Park at a meeting on Monday.
The proposal, dubbed “Plan B” by the Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation (CSEC), would see an arena built on two existing parking lots on the Stampede grounds – bordered by 12 Avenue, 5 Street S.E., 14 Avenue S.E. and Olympic Way S.E.
Councillors will get more information on the proposal – now called the Victoria Park Option – at a regular meeting of city council on April 24.
At the time, Nenshi said “a potential site in Victoria Park makes way more sense” because infrastructure investments, including the Green Line [LRT], are “happening anyway.”
