The rumors that I am donating tens of millions of dollars are completely unfounded, I'm afraid.

So this isn't you pledging to the cause?

So I've heard the price to get bleachers in the HPC is being quoted at near $1 million.  Someone please tell me that's for more than just the bleachers.

I guess quote may be the wrong word here, perhaps more of an estimate (though since it was delayed from Phase 1, probably a pretty accurate estimate).

Engineers and architects come up with estimates during all phases of planning and design. Having an estimated price does not mean it is close to being built. 

I didn't respond to anything with the word "estimate".  UND Biz clarified.

any more money spent at the hpc phase 1 or 2 should be ....athletes>spectators

Considering the bleachers were supposed to be part of Phase 1 and will actually allow for quality meets to be held there along with cleaning up a lot of the storage issues they are having, I disagree. Phase 2 requires a significant capital push along with re-approval from the SBoHE. Finishing Phase 1 does not.

even if und hosts "quality" meets very very few people will show up.

I throw up in my mouth a little each time I drive by the re-purposed Ray Richards golf course.  What a pathetic decision - yet they persist.

There was a pretty good turnout at the meet earlier this year but that's not that point. The finishing touches should be put on Phase 1, it would significantly add to how impressive the building already is. There's a world class track in there that a lot of teams in the midwest would love to run on, which will only help T&F recruiting along with improving the building overall.

Cross country course next month. Nothing else I'm aware of.

An un-golf course - They had some grandiose plans of a dinky-town but that is many years down the road.  Shamefully, they had other offers to run it as a golf course.  But, hey, why do something that makes Grand Forks a better city to live in.

The retail industry is in such disarray now, so the Ray Richards redevelopment was probably pushed back.  Nothing will likely happen til some company takes Macy's old spot and someone else take over Sear's spot when they finally declare permanent bankruptcy.  And that still leaves question marks over JC Penny's spot.
