There won’t be any more events at Mosaic Stadium, but it will be quite a while yet before the iconic facility starts getting torn down.
The city’s Kim Onrait says there has been work inside the stadium as far as getting some items out now that all football games scheduled have been played as the decommissioning begins.
As for how much longer the stadium stands for, Onrait says it will be well into 2017 with a question remaining as to whether or not a wrecking ball will be used or if the stadium could be imploded.
He says that will depend on who gets the demolition contract and what thoughts they have.
The plan is for the 20 acres of land to be redeveloped into a site with a variety of housing options, a local park and commercial opportunities, serving as a key link between the Railyard Redevelopment Project, the downtown core and the new Mosaic Stadium.
