Tuesday evening, the Cuyahoga Council approved the proposed funding for renovations to Quicken Loans Arena. The measure passed by an 8-3 vote.

The $140 million project will add more public space to the arena and enclose it in a glass envelope. The hope is that the renovations will relieve concourse bottleneck problems, provide more room for visitors to gather before and after events, and help promote more street and neighborhood activity.

The Q is now 22 years old, the average lifespan for an NBA arena. It’s now the second oldest in the league.

The public’s $70 million would not involve new taxes or take money from city and county services, or their general funds.
