The University of Colorado State recently held a meeting to discuss possible site selections for its new on campus stadium.
The possible sites for the new campus stadium included the area of Meridian Avenue and Lake Street. The locations are in the southeast region of Colorado State. In order for the campus stadium to be constructed, a few buildings will need to be demolished. The President of the University whose name is Amy Parsons elaborates on how the possible sites are preliminary and the findings can ultimately alter the possible sites for the brand new campus stadium.
A consulting company is going to analyze the possible sites and Amy expects complications to arise during the process. The subcommittees also discussed the advancements in the site selection process since the last meeting that took place on February 3, 2012. The findings at the meeting showed that the community of Fort Collins was against the construction of the stadium while the University obviously supported the project. The staff and the facility on the other hand were also against the construction of the on campus stadium. Nearly 80 to 90 percent of the facility and staff were opposed to the idea of the new stadium.
The majority of the audience at the site selection meeting consisted of individuals who were community members of Fort Collins. A Fort Collin resident whose name is Harry Goldman states that the majority of people love sports in the region but it is definitely not worth the $400 million dollar investment that would be used to construction the stadium in the University. Many of the community members were opposed to the construction because the initial investment was far more than expected. The money could definitely be utilized for other meaningful purposes.
The site selection would help to establish the sports authority of the University but it will also sacrifice the community members.
