FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4)- The Fort Collins city council has voted against adding a measure that would have put the proposed new football stadium at Colorado State University on the November ballot.

The measure would have asked voters if they supported or opposed the decision.

CSU’s president, Tony Frank, said a decision on the stadium is expected next month.

Four committees studying the proposal to build a new $250 million stadium gave their recommendation last month.

All four committees said it is feasible to build a new stadium. The study found the existing roads can support the traffic, the noise would be dampened by the stadium construction and the current parking situation can handle an expected 7,800+ cars during home games.

Right now Hughes Stadium lies at the base of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, about two miles west of the main campus. There is a debate over the future of that stadium.
