Evan Woolley convinced only three Council colleagues that the review of the taxpayer-funded portion of the arena was the right way forward. Most of his colleagues voted against the idea last Friday. This is no longer hypothetical. Calgary taxpayers have purchased a new NHL arena. The City of Calgary released all agreements it signed with the owners of the Flames hockey team for the arena agreement last July. In July, Calgary City Council approved plans for a $550 million arena to be funded in a public-private partnership with the Flames Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation (CSEC) ownership group. The arena will be built in East Victoria Park and will be owned by the city, with the Flames working on a 35-year lease. In the event of cost overruns during the construction of the arena, CMLC first considers using money from an emergency fund or recalinlinizing the project. If more money is needed, the city and the Flames share the additional 50/50 charges.

CMLC is not obligated to fund any of the cost overruns. These agreements define how the new organizational centre will be built, managed and managed, and will ensure that costs, obligations and benefits are clearly defined. Among the key points of the final agreements, Jeff Davison, elected to the Board in 2017, when previous negotiations between Calgary and the Flames were indicted, is among those who committed to the arena agreement. CALGARY — Just over a month after final contracts were signed with the Calgary Flames, Stampede and Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC), the City has released detailed contracts for the arena`s new development at East Victoria Park.
