SAU Officials Rally Support For Stadium Complex

Posted: Updated:

 

     St. Ambrose University officials are rallying support for the proposed stadium complex. Several hundred people turned out to a meeting Monday night on campus.

     The plan calls for a 2,500-seat football stadium along with other athletic fields. There's been a lot of opposition from neighbors who are concerned about traffic, light, noise and water runoff. University officials hoped to encourage those who are in favor to show their support.

     "These kids deserve a place to play. It's not just football, it's softball, lacrosse, soccer," said Pete Ivanic, who is in support of the project. 

      "There are other locations that are better suited. It was mentioned perhaps by the riverfront to tie into the center down there, which is much better traffic access," said John LaBella, a neighbor who is opposed.

     The proposal is being sent to the city on Monday, April 7th. The first Planning and Zoning Commission meeting addressing the project is on May 6th, with another meeting on May 20th and then it goes to city council. If approved, the hope is to break ground this fall and have the stadium ready for football in 2017 or 2018.
