Athletic development moves ahead at Assumption

This past week WQAD interviewed Andy Craig, President of Assumption High School about further development of the Assumption property for athletics. The Channel 8 morning show, regularly interviews community leaders over breakfast and reveals developments that may not appear on the front pages. While Craig fell short of announcing a football stadium for the property soon, a phase II facility seems a go for the fall of 2021 with the help of St Ambrose University. Assumption has plans to install a full feature track, 500 seat bleachers, additional parking lot and a bridge across the unnamed creek that leads from Warren street intersection with Central Park, northward to Duck Creek. St. Ambrose when they owned the property ran afoul of IDNR regulations in an effort to cross this creek with a crossing. Assumption should learn from that experience for this project.
