The University of Louisiana Monroe’s storied Brown Stadium will soon receive some long-awaited loving care. The University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors on Thursday gave approval for ULM to renovate Brown Stadium, including construction of a new track and soccer field at 340 Warhawk Way. “Improvements to Brown Stadium and Groseclose Track are long overdue,” ULM President Dr. Nick Bruno said. “These improvements will provide multiple benefits to our teams, the community and the region.” ULM Facilities, Inc., will administer the project, with its anticipated cost of approximately $5 million. “We’ll have revenues that come from a couple of different sources,” ULMFI president Scott McDonald said. “It comes from some auxiliary money, primarily some student money we have available to us and we bonded out and paid for it over a period of time. The Monroe/West Monroe Convention and Visitors Bureau made a very sizable and generous contribution. “Obviously that track serves as a community asset. You see people running, jogging and walking out there all the time. It will continue to serve the community as well as the athletic teams.” Bruno said, “Contributions by the Convention and Visitors Bureau confirm the potential impact as is experienced by the softball complex.” – Paul Letlow, knoe.com – Read More
