FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) – Colorado State University is now getting input from students, neighbors and the public about a possible new football stadium.

CSU has said moving from Hughes Stadium west of town to an on-campus location would help energize the fans and the community.

On Thursday afternoon CSU held the first of 10 public forums to hear what others think about the proposal.

President Tony Frank says a new facility must meet four requirements. Frank says it cannot be built on existing open space, including CSU’s intramural athletic fields. He says any significant views of the mountains on campus must be preserved.

The school has to consider the impact of a new stadium on nearby neighborhoods. And money from the state, tuition and taxes cannot be used to pay for the new stadium.

Registration to attend one of the forums is required. Visit a special webpage to RSVP for a forum.
