Matthew Knight Arena Monitoring Report
MetadataShow full item record
The Matthew Knight Arena (Arena) is the new home of the University of Oregon’s basketball program. Completed in the fall of 2010, the Arena seats 12,800 people and was built to serve as a multipurpose venue for concerts, lectures, commencement, and other attractions in addition to basketball games. In winter 2011, the University contracted with the Community Planning Workshop (CPW) to monitor Arena operations and determine the effectiveness of the mitigation and management measures described in the Arena Impact Mitigation Agreement (AIMA) and Transportation Demand Management Plan (TDM). Per the Arena Comprehensive Monitoring Plan requirements the CPW team collected data onsite at three Arena events (i.e., firsthand observation); from interviews with neighbors, local businesses, agency personnel, and other stakeholders, as well as from primary data, such as raw transit ridership, event attendance numbers, and parking citation information.
