Agenda Title:

18-080 - 1R. An ordinance approving a first amendment to Amended and Restated Arena Lease between the City and Kansas City Mavericks, LLC.

Staff recommends approval of this Ordinance.
Executive Summary:

The City of Independence and Independence Professional Hockey, LLC originally entered into an Amended and Restated Arena Lease on August 13, 2009 for use of the City's multi-purpose sports and entertainment facility by the Missouri Mavericks.  On January 21, 2015 the City consented to assignment of the Hockey Lease from Independence Professional Hockey, LLC to Kansas City Mavericks, LLC.


The nine year relationship between the "Mavericks" and the city has been very beneficial to the Independence community and surrounding areas.  The proposed Amendment to the Amended and Restated Lease would facilitate various modifications to the lease and extend it for a period of six years.
