ROSE GARDEN RAISES THE BAR ON WHEELCHAIR SEATING
Published August 7, 1998
The Rose Garden "will have better wheelchair seating than almost any other sports arena in the country thanks to a lawsuit settlement announced Wednesday," according to Ashbel Green of the Portland OREGONIAN. According to the agreement, arena officials will build 101 elevated wheelchair seats throughout the arena so that users can see the game when other spectators stand up in front of them. During Blazer games and other sporting events, arena officials will hold all 101 seats open until the day of the game, but will sell the seats to the general public if they aren't purchased by wheelchair users. The changes "should be in effect" by the start of this season (OREGONIAN, 8/6).
