Waco ISD deal to get Floyd Casey Stadium dead

Posted:
WACO - The president of Waco ISD's school board said Thursday night that a deal for the district to be given Baylor's Floyd Casey Stadium is dead.

News Channel 25 broke the story last month that Baylor had offered to deed the stadium to the district if Waco ISD would pay to have it demolished.

Trustees determined that would cost between $1.5 and $2 million and there was concern whether demolishing the stadium would be the best use of that money.

"After reviewing all the information provided to the board, no board member asked for it to be placed on Thursday's agenda for board action, and no one has indicated that they intend to ask for an agenda item in the future, " Board President Pat Atkins said.
Trustees were also concerned what the land would be best used for.

The stadium sits on a 108 acre tract, and Baylor planned to keep about 27 acres along Valley Mills and Dutton. Another 28 acres is titled to the City of Waco near the Clyde Hart track facility. That would leave about 54 acres for Waco ISD to take over, if they had been interested.
