WHAT: The Colorado State University Stadium Advisory Committee will hold its final meeting and deliver a stadium feasibility study to CSU President Tony Frank, who has said he will not make a decision about whether to move ahead with a new stadium before the start of the fall semester. The meeting is open to the public and the media.
The SAC begin its work on Feb. 3, 2012, with the charge from President Frank to examine the feasibility of building a new stadium on the university main campus, including:
- The process that will be used to take input from and communicate to the public and various stakeholder groups;
- Site selection;
- Fundraising and naming opportunities; and
- Hiring appropriate professionals and contractors necessary to analyze, plan, design and build the new stadium.
In addition, President Frank gave the committee the following parameters that must be followed in any recommendation:
- CSU won’t consider putting the stadium on existing open green space, including the intramural fields;
- CSU won’t consider putting the stadium in front of significant existing view sheds so as to protect views of the mountains;
- All recommendations from the Advisory Committee must take into serious account any impact on neighbors in areas adjacent or near a new stadium; and
- State appropriation, tuition, fees or taxes will not be considered as funding sources for a stadium project.
