I think this is an amazing idea! We are a hockey family that travels to Gilbert to play. This would be a tremendous opportunity for Mesa and its residents to reuse this facility and bring opportunity to the Fiesta Mall area.

I want Mesa to build a stadium for the coyotes! Use the newly renovated Fiesta district in Mesa.
Having a stadium for the AZ Coyotes would generate income for the city. Building it where Fiesta mall currently sits would be an ideal location. It has easy access to and from on the US60 which is easily accessible to all the other freeway systems. There are also a few hotels in the area that could house put of town guests. There are restaurants in the area, some shopping, and buildings that could also be devolped into an entertainment district. Having the coyotes in Mesa would help the state, the Coyotes organization, and most importantly the City on Mesa.

I thought private developers already have plans for the old mall. I believe I read construction begins in January.

I've been saying that that mall should be converted to an indoor amusement park similar to the concept in Minnesota. It would allow for year-round entertainment, would have lots of parking and local restaurants/hotels nearby that would add income to that area, and is very conveniently located by good roads/highways. The airport and even the local Greyhound station are both easily accessible to the location.
It could be a destination location for tourists throughout the year and provide a much needed indoor activity location for the locals here in the summer months.

Worst business decision the team ever made was moving to Glendale. I can't say Mesa would be better for the entire valley but would be better for me!
