You should forward this to the Athletic director, CJ Jones.
JONESC@CCSU.edu
I would keep in mind that this arena would be used for probably 15-20 years and you would want to keep growth in the picture. I have always had dreams of Central joining the A-10. Would a 6000 seat arena be enough? hmmmmmm?

I have always said that you could raise the roof of the current gym, push out the walls and install stadium style seating, thats always another option. But it would never replace the excitment that comes from opening a new facility.

Again this will come from the State giving the respect that Central deserves, get on-board, shell out the dough.
Without a full blown president, that just will not happen.

CJ is not the person that needs convincing. The decision comes from much higher up.

Insider - that much I know. As you indicated before, a permanent president needs to be in place and then CCSU administration and students need to make a decision that this type of facility is a high priority for the campus. If that doesn't happen, then this is just pie in the sky stuff.

However, since the Master Plan has been in place they have built a dorm (James), an academic building (Vance) and renovated many others (Student Center, Copernicus, etc.). The fieldhouse is on the drawing board, but I think they still want to build another academic building before they address a fieldhouse - its priority has slipped a little. If the time isn't right now, it shouldn't be too far off (lets hope within a year or two). Once the school agrees it is a high priority, the next step would be the CSU BOT, then the Legislature. Its a tough process, but as an "outsider" with experience in public budgeting, from the comments made in the Herald and in the CSU budget docs, it is a real possibility, but it will need a lot of support when the time comes.

Agreed. Of course if one of you guys wants to donate the $$$ and earmark it for the facility we could avoid all of that red tape!
