     It's a more than 20 million dollar project for a local university that would mean a big impact on a nearby high school and the entire community. Now, Saint Ambrose University is sharing the draft plans for a new stadium complex. 
     The plans have been tweaked for the 2,500 seat football stadium and several other fields near Assumption High School in Davenport. The stadium location was moved to the center of the property, and there are some additions like a berm and landscaping. University officials are also discussing results from studies on traffic, light and other issues nearby residents have voiced concern over.
     "They have an opportunity to put their dream complex, sports facility somewhere on a large plot of land where they don't have to make these compromises," said Jim Welch, acting chair of the Neighborhood Relations Council.
     "It's already an athletic complex and really what we want is to make improvements to it and make something that would be both a draw for Assumption High School as well as Saint Ambrose," said Mike Poster, VP of Finance for SAU.
     Neighbors still have two and a half months to give input before the university can go to the city with its proposal in early April. There will be several upcoming meetings for area residents on at the Rogalski Center on campus. 
     Those meetings are:
          5-6 p.m. January 30th
          February 6 after the bi-annual update
          noon to 1 p.m. February 17th
          7:30-8:30 a.m. February 27th
          5:30-6:30 p.m. March 3rd
