CLEVELAND - Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish issued the following statement:
“We’re excited the transformation project is back on track and we’re looking forward to the energy and positive impact this important economic project will bring to the region. Improving the Arena, creating and retaining jobs, and locking the Cavs down in Cleveland through 2034, all without raising taxes, is a big deal for northeast Ohio!

The county is taking steps to execute the sales tax revenue bonds for the project. We’re committed to an aggressive schedule to compete for the All-Star game and other events that bring attention, development and jobs to our city and county.”
