The site is on privately-held tribal land at the northeast corner of the Loop 101 and 202, at McKellips and McClintock. It was home to the Scottsdale 6 drive-in for more than 30 years…
An announcement connected to the site could come on Thursday, I’ve been told. The arena would be part of a larger project at the site.
If you are a fiscal conservative and you care about infrastructure neglect due to taxpayer subsidies for private businesses, you owe it to yourself to click through to Field of Schemes and read a few of their articles.

Not Scottsdale land, right? What do you think could happen?
In addition to what I noted in the article, Scottsdale’s contribution to regional transportation infrastructure (via Valley Metro) has–as far as I know–always exceeded what we’ve gotten in return. This was one of Jim Lane’s main campaign themes in his race against Mary Manross. So, who do you think will wind up paying for improvements to the 101 (which is not a Scottsdale roadway, nor is it actually IN Scottsdale at this point)? Scottsdale taxpayers.
