Supporters of a new arena .

Carmichael, is the current Natomas arena good enough? With some renovation, could it bring as much economic benefit as a new, downtown arena?

The former Arco Arena could definitely use a makeover, according to Bee columnist Marcos Breton.

"How about putting [a] nominal amount of money into the current arena so it doesn't look like such a dump?" Breton said on Twitter. "Is that so hard?"
