Taking A Stand: What to do with Roberts?

With the new Ford Center up and running, what's going to happen to Roberts Stadium?

Mayor-elect Lloyd Winnecke says he will assemble a task force of architects and professionals to come up with recommendations by early next year.

The Roberts Stadium complex covers 57 acres.

It's prime real estate right off the Lloyd Expressway and just minutes from Interstate 164.

A member of our news team suggested the property be turned into an energy park with wind turbines and solar panels, leaving a green footprint on the community.

So, if you have an idea, now is the time to speak up.
