I've listed this article for peer review because I want confirmation that the subject is notable and I would like comments and suggestions on the content from someone not familiar with the subject.

You'll probably want a second opinion on this, because there are some debatable issues here. I'm going off your notability defense on Talk:Sonics Arena Proposal, so it seems you've already seen WP:BREAKING, WP:NOTE, and WP:RECENT. However, I'm surprised you didn't include WP:FUTURE, since that seems very relevant here:

It is appropriate to report discussion and arguments about the prospects for success of future proposals and projects or whether some development will occur, if discussion is properly referenced.

So it would appear that it is notable. That said, your article seems to be about the proposal for an athletics facility, not the facility itself. As such, it might need to be renamed "Proposed Sonics Arena" or something to that effect, especially if the proposal passes, because I would assume you intend to turn it into a stadium article at some point should that happen.

As for more general advice, the article will need some major work at some point, though that's probably not practical right now since it's a current event. The lead section will need to be larger and cover the basic elements of the article, much of the article will need to be sourced (in fact, do this now to the best of your ability, and remove everything else), and there are plenty of WP:MOS issues to work out, too many to cover here. The "See Also" section should definitely be changed to an external links section (placed after references) since see also only includes wikilinks. Runfellow (talk) 05:19, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
