The selection of the site of the future Downtown event centre/arena should consider an number of factors that will have a real influence, not only on the physical location of a new arena, but also support animation of an event and entertainment district and be a shared public space where residents feel welcome and have a sense of belonging.

The evaluation criteria highlight the importance of the event centre/arena site and how it would work with supporting infrastructure development, transportation connections, access to existing parking, how close it is to existing businesses and other key considerations.
