The Role of the Stadium Advisory Group
Colorado State University and the City of Fort Collins are working together to make significant progress on both the milestones and projects within the Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) related to an on-campus stadium. As part of the stadium IGA, CSU and the City agreed to support and participate in the creation and maintenance of a Stadium Advisory Group (SAG) with members jointly appointed by the City and CSU.
The role of the SAG is to examine actual impacts and community interactions as the new stadium is put to use for home football games, convocations, and other activities. The SAG occasionally will present recommendations to the City and CSU regarding stadium issues that have impacted, or are anticipated to impact, local residents and make recommendations regarding the use of the Good Neighbor Fund.
Good Neighbor Fund
CSU recognizes the construction and subsequent use of the stadium may have impacts on the neighborhoods adjacent to the University, both expected and unexpected. In the spirit of partnership and responsibility, CSU will conduct fundraising efforts to establish a Good Neighbor Fund, administered and maintained by CSU or an associated foundation or other appropriate entity, for the sole purpose of supporting efforts to lessen any undesirable or unanticipated effects on City neighborhoods.
The Stadium Advisory Group is now accepting Good Neighbor Fund proposals. Deadline to submit a proposal is April 30, 2017. Download the Good Neighbor Fund application and proposal form – Word or PDF. Completed forms must be sent as an attachment to Gary.Ozzello@colostate.edu.
