The advisory board for Roberts Stadium met May 7th, 2008 and recommended to move forward with the project if adequate funding sources as identified in the consultant's report and support from regional business can be secured. The board also recommends that a financial study be done to ensure that property taxes won't be negatively affected in the long-term life of the new stadium. The advisory board also recommended studying new uses for Roberts Stadium. The consultant's report suggested an outlet mall, Water Park or a retail/residential development.
