The best stadium for Spokane

We need to have another vote on these two options: remodel Albi as it is or build a new stadium.

The new stadium will have seating for 5,000 which would hold limited events. Albi will have the ability to hold many different larger events like was held several years ago. A city the size of Spokane needs a facility like this. This project is too important to rush into without a lot of thought and consideration. The voters should have all the information on both options and let them decide which one they feel is best for our athletes and Spokane.

It is normal for concrete to crack but it should have been filled and sealed to prevent water from getting into it and freezing. The damage concrete can be fixed. Albi is well built but needs to be remodeled for continue use. The Public Facilities District should run Albi or the new stadium as it has the ability to promote different activities and be able to see that the proper maintenance is done.

We need to come up with the best facility which Spokane can use the most efficient way and be proud of for years to come. Contact the school board members and demand another vote on these two options.
