Uptown Stadium Update?
Any updates on when we can expect to see updated renderings and an official groundbreaking ceremony? It's been pretty quiet since the city voted to close the roads about a month ago. I thought the new designs were supposed to come out last month?

I know they're doing utility work now, but I want to see bulldozers and cranes out there!

The project has not even gone for bid much less completed design. Folks need to be patient. Let's follow the legal bid process and do it right. Lord knows every aspect will be scrutinized.

I tweeted at one of the BBJ writers and he said they haven't heard anything, either.

Not me. Lol. Not doing this one. Wish I was. I think people would feel better having oversight that they know. I’m still on a high profile one now that demanded it. ;-)

At what point in the bid / design process will fans be able to get some concrete ideas of what improved features / amenities for fans the new stadium will provide?

I heard Councilor Steven Hoyt say on WJLD-AM this morning that construction on the new stadium will begin sometime in December of this year.

As soon as the final designs & renderings are completed by the architects. If construction is to begin in December that would likely be sometime in November/early December.
