RE: ODU Master Plan
I would like to keep it where it is. Knock down the clam shells and build a two-level structure with a first-level concourse for restrooms and vendors. That removes the need for the "parking lot" space outside of Foreman Field. Personally, I don't care for the clamshell look. I'd prefer something more state of the art that will actually attract prospective student athletes.

Raise the seating from 20k to 35k. Allow room for expansion to 45k if needed, but preferably no higher than that.

RE: ODU Master Plan
What about the Powhatan Sports Complex? It seems that would be the only feasible place to build a new stadium. ODU could buy into neighborhoods on either end of campus, but that could be very expensive. If we build a new stadium, we would have two football stadiums. I haven't heard of a school with two stadiums. In my opinion, it looks like we will just expand.

foreman field could be a field hockey/ soccor field.

My plan for the water front stadium is where the old dorms are located, next to the golf course

RE: ODU Master Plan
we built separate field hockey and soccer stadiums so they didn't have to play at foreman anymore.

RE: ODU Master Plan
If you're wanting more parking garages other than the ones already on the master plan, why not just bulldoze The Inn, and then make a parking garage there. The Inn is fairly old, and the lot is large enough for a medium size parking garage. Close enough to campus to make it easy to walk to and from, but isolated enough that it doesn't take away from the surrounding aesthetics on campus.

Also: Why would ODU need 3 stops on the Tide? How much would an extra 1.5 miles of construction cost? I'm guessing a bunch.

RE: ODU Master Plan
3 stops as it goes passed ODU on the way to the base? I think they were doing studies to see what the best path would be. Go up Colley or down Hampton, etc.

I would think Hampton Blvd is the logical choice. I don't see how you could configure Colley to fit an additional rail car with the existing 2-way traffic.

RE: ODU Master Plan
Agreed. The only snafu I can think of with that is at the tracks where Hampton goes under them. LR would have to go over. Easiest way to do that I would imagine is down near Colley or even Colonial.
