CSU starts two-month stadium assessment process

President Tony Frank on Monday formally started an evaluation process related to Colorado State’s ongoing stadium discussion. The move follows the CSU System Board of Governor’s recent approval of a 60-day plan from Frank to assess four stadium possibilities for the Rams football program and other campus activities.

A voter information-style “blue book” has been posted online. The analysis seeks to provide an impartial breakdown of the four potential options – two of them looking at remaining at Hughes Stadium and two considering a new on-campus stadium.

In addition, Frank charged two committees – one comprised of community leaders and the other of campus representatives – with reviewing the options presented in the “blue book.” The full text of his charge to the committees, as well as the names of appointees, is posted on the stadium website.

Finally, CSU unveiled a web tool that the public can use to provide input on the options presented in the “blue book.” Students, staff, faculty, alumni, donors, community members and other stakeholders are encouraged to use this tool  to share their opinions about the four stadium options.

All documents and tools referenced above have been posted online. In addition, the website contains links to copies of all public documents that have been produced through the stadium exploration process since 2012.
