Do you support a new sports arena in downtown Detroit?
That’s what Patch wants to know this week after Mike Ilitch announced plans to develop a new district downtown that would include a “multi-purpose events center,” according to HuffPost Detroit.
The new development could replace Joe Louis Arena as home to the Detroit Red Wings, the NHL team that Ilitch owns.
Olympia Development said the events center alone could create 5,500 jobs and that the entire development would create approximately 8,500 jobs.

Do you want a new arena downtown? Would it help Detroit? Would it help–or hurt—other communities in southeastern Michigan?
