VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia — Virginia Beach's City Council has approved the framework for an agreement to build an oceanfront arena that could accommodate a professional sports team.
The city says in a news release that the council unanimously approved a non-binding agreement called a term sheet Tuesday night.
The term sheet states that the $200 million project would be funded by private financing provided by United States Management LLC.
Virginia Beach would provide $52.6 million for infrastructure outside the area, including parking, a public plaza, and utilities such as lights, water and sewer.
United States Management would own and operate the arena.
The city says a vote on a final agreement could occur in the first quarter of 2105.
