Grand Island, Neb. — The Grand Island school board has approved provisions for a $10 million donation for a renovation of the district’s Memorial Stadium.

The Grand Island Independent reports that the board voted unanimously Thursday for the provisions. The money from alumnus Lanny Martin will be added to $2 million from district resources for the $17 million project. The remaining $5 million will be sought by a community fundraising campaign.

Martin initially agreed to donate $5 million. He increased his commitment to $10 million as the project scope broadened.

Dan Petsch is the district director of buildings and grounds, and he says the goal is to have design pieces and drawings ready to go out for proposals by the end of the year.

The stadium is more than 70 years old.
