arenabSEATTLE –- City leaders are taking a closer look at three different areas for a new sports arena in Seattle.

In the newly released Draft Environmental Impact Statement, city officials released their findings on the 21 proposed sites that could potentially host arena operations.

Those sites were eventually narrowed down to three locations by the Department of Planning and Development: The current KeyArena site, Memorial Stadium, which neighbors the Seattle Center, and the SoDo district.

The review process for the proposed locations is far from over. The city will host two public hearings on their findings, one on Sept. 10 at City Hall and another on Sept. 19 at Seattle Center.

City officials hope to have a finalized Environmental Impact Statement by the first quarter of 2014.
