• Seattle arena planners launch 'Sonics Arena' website, social pages


    SEATTLE - Chris Hansen and the investment group behind the effort to bring a new NBA/NHL arena to Seattle's SoDo neighborhood have launched a new website dedicated to providing updates on the project.

    Appropriately, it's titled SonicsArena.com.

    "We have created this site, along with our Facebook page and Twitter feed, to share information about the proposal and give some guidance as to how you can help," Hansen wrote on the site. "For all of you who believe in what we are trying to do and support our efforts, the time has come to act and make your voice heard."

    The group also launched Twitter and Facebook pages around the brand.

    The group's first order of business has been to schedule a rally in support of the new arena, scheduled for 4 p.m. on June 14 at Occidental Park.
