42,000-seat stadium proposed for CSU
The plans suggest the stadium should be situated in a north to south orientation, next to the university's Plant Environmental Research Center, between Lake and Pitkin streets just west of Whitcomb Street.
They also include two new parking garages and an alumni center near the stadium.
Populous presented its designs in both Denver and Fort Collins this week, and made them public on the stadium website. The full plan can be accessed here. The designs will be presented at the next meeting of the stadium advisory committee, to be held May 30.
The committee will give a recommendation to university President Tony Frank based upon the findings of the work its members have done since January.
A group opposed to the new stadium, Save Our Stadium Hughes, will host a volunteer roundup at 7 p.m. on May 16 at the Westminster Presbyterian Church, located at 1709 W. Elizabeth St. The event will provide information about volunteer opportunities for those interested in supporting SOSH.
The university is also investigating the possibility of renovating the 32,500-seat Hughes Stadium.
