City of Everett to pay thousands for a sign in Comcast Arena, NW Plus Credit Union’s Loss is Coastal Community Bank’s gain and Sugarland still hopefully coming to Everett

Comcast Arena in the Moonlight

The City of Everett’s Department of Emergency Management is going to be spending thousands of dollars to put a sign inside Comcast Arena. That word today from the monthly Everett Public Facilities District Board meeting. It seems the Department of Emergency Management has grant funds to promote its mission of preparing people for disaster and since Comcast Arena is owned by the Public Facilities District and not the city, they can’t just put up a free sign. The PFD is giving the city a 20% discount however but it still seems strange to see the City of Everett Emergency Management Department spending money inside of a building it may use as an emergency shelter if the big one hits.

In other Comcast Arena news today, Coastal Community Bank is about to get Comcast Arena as a customer as the State of Washington has informed the Public Facilities District that they’re not supposed to be banking at a credit union and have to use a commercial bank. So bye-bye longtime banking partner, Northwest Plus Credit Union, hello Coastal Community Bank.

Finally, in an earlier Blog Post I mentioned country music supergroup Sugarland is scheduled to play Comcast Arena on July 18th. According to Comcast Arena’s Kim Bedier, that will hopefully be firmed up soon but it’s still not a done deal.

Congrats also to Comcast Arena Everett for launching a new in the arena texting service so guests can text messages to arena management. Soon VIP Text Club members can text to vote on their favorite beer. Now that’s using technology to its fullest!
