Virginia Tech Board to Hear Stadium Woods Issue

by AP posted Jun 4 2012 10:01AM
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Virginia Tech's Board of Visitors is scheduled to see a presentation about the Stadium Woods project, an athletic department proposal to build an indoor football practice center on part of the grounds' woodland area.
President Charles Steger is expected to make the presentation about the proposal Monday at the board's regularly scheduled quarterly meeting. It calls for building the center on up to 5 acres of the nearly 14-acre Stadium Woods.
A panel formed in January to study the issue after the discovery of about 60 white oaks on the property that could date back three centuries. The group's report hasn't been made public.
The Faculty Senate, Student Government Association and the student-led Environmental Coalition are asking the board to preserve the woods and build the practice center elsewhere.
