I very rarely post in this thread because I do work for the City, but here's an e-mail that Simon (Farbrother) just sent to all City employees:

I am pleased to let you know that earlier today Council approved the final piece of funding for the downtown arena. This decision is a huge step forward for the project and our downtown. We anticipate that we will break ground early in 2014 with completion of the facility set for the summer of 2016.
As you know revitalization of the heart of our city is a priority for Edmonton and the arena and entertainment district is a key catalyst in that effort.

Once again I would like to thank all of the staff from across the City who have worked tirelessly to advance this project and help us build a better Edmonton.
