The plans for the new Saint Ambrose stadium will up be for consideration for the first time on Wednesday night, June 4, 2014.

Davenport City Council members will also hear from the public about the controversial project.

For years, Saint Ambrose University has been working on plans for a proposed stadium that would be located behind Assumption High School.

The stadium would mean a new 2,500 seat football stadium, softball diamond, soccer fields and a parking lot with more than 400 spaces.

Some community members are concerned about issues like traffic and storm water, while others say they're on board with the plans.

Despite the concerns, the Davenport Planning and Zoning Commission gave the green light for the project last month.

Susan Lamers with the Planning and Zoning Commission says there is still work to be done.

"There have been positive impacts through everybody working hard together. But there's also been negative impacts that still with the best of intentions have not been resolved."

"I think it will be a great facility. I don't think it's being used for anything different than it's being used right now."

"A lot of people are expected to attend Wednesday night's meeting starting at 5:30 at Davenport City Hall."

The plans will still have several readings this month and next month before a final vote is made.
