The second public forum on Roberts Stadium will be held Tues., August  28 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in Browning Rooms A and B of the Central Library.

Tom Chema of Gateway Marketing Consultants will host the forum, focusing on the public demand for entertainment and opportunities to bring new events to Evansville.

Chema has outlined specific topics for discussion, focusing on the types of entertainment the community would like to see at Roberts Stadium. He will discuss what events people attend now versus which ones they would like to attend, where people travel for entertainment, the effects of entertainment of recruiting for the local business and university sectors, and more.

The public is encouraged to come and share opinions on only these topics Chema has outlined so the adequacy of Roberts Stadium can be fully evaluated. Gateway's final report and evaluation of the stadium should be finished by the end of the year.
