City advancing baseball stadium despite higher costJune 10, 2019
By The Associated Press
LAFAYETTE — Lafayette’s mayor doesn’t plan major changes to plans for a new city baseball stadium even though construction bids totaled nearly $4 million more than expected.
The new 2,500-seat stadium would be built at the same site as the current Loeb Stadium in Columbian Park southeast of downtown Lafayette.
Mayor Tony Roswarski tells the (Lafayette) Journal & Courier that no modifications will be made that would diminish the stadium’s functionality or its value as a gateway into the city.
Roswarski blames higher steel and labor costs for bids exceeding the project’s $16.5 million estimate.
The current stadium is home to the Lafayette Aviators of the amateur Prospect League. Demolition is planned for this fall, with the new stadium opening in spring 2021.
