[ARCHIVED] City Council hears first report on GW stadium

Municipal Building

City Council on Tuesday received a preliminary report that outlined three plans for renovating the 45-year-old J.T. Christopher Stadium. Consultants are recommending an option that would include a new track and an artificial turf.

In addition to a new track and an artificial turf, the home of the G.W. Eagles also would get improvements to the concession stand, a new field house and press box, and handicapped parking and seating.

This option would cost an estimated $8.4 million, but City Council members indicated that private donations would pay a portion of that figure.

A second option at a cost of $5.8 million option would include stadium renovations but no track.

A third option includes a new stadium with a track surface at the Langston campus, for a total cost of about $9.3 million.

The study was performed by C.H. Johnson Consulting, Inc., in Chicago, and CHA Sports. A presentation was made to City Council during its work session on Tuesday night. In work sessions, Council reviews non-routine matters that will be voted upon in future business meetings.

City Council will hold further discussions once the final report is completed.
