Goodbye, Coyotes Boulevard. Hello, Entertainment Boulevard?
The Glendale City Council is taking the first steps to remove the last reference to the Arizona Coyotes on city property, after the professional hockey team opted to leave Glendale in favor of playing in Tempe.
The new name was suggested by YAM Properties, the owner of the Westgate Entertainment District, and Atrium Hospitality, owner of the Renaissance Glendale Hotel and Spa, which are the only entities that have addresses on Coyotes Boulevard.
The road is only about a half-mile long, running from 91st Avenue to 95th Avenue, but runs through pieces of the Westgate Entertainment District and in front of Desert Diamond Arena, formerly Gila River Arena, which was the home of the Coyotes.
