Parking & Access
High-frequency shuttles will be available throughout downtown for major events, along with valet, premium parking passes, and convenient rideshare drop-off/pick-up zones.
Budget & Financing Plan
C-SPLOST is a temporary, half penny tax that will generate the resources to build a new arena and cover the interest payments on bonds issued to fund the project.
The hard and soft construction costs for the arena are estimated to be $250M and bonds to fund the project will be issued early 2024 following approval by the Commission.
The par amount of bonds to be issued will be determined once a final project cost is determined but will not exceed $250M.
The total amount needed to repay the bonds will depend on the amount of bonds and current interest rates when the bonds are issued, but the total will not exceed $433.2M.
