Sta­dium his­tory

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NORTHWEST ARKANSAS - Source: Staff re­port

The ques­tion of how to pay for a foot­ball sta­dium at West High School has been around since long be­fore the school opened. A 2012 pro­posal of 6.7 mills would have raised about $128 mil­lion for a high school, all of its ath­letic fa­cil­i­ties and other district needs. It failed with about 58 per­cent of res­i­dents vot­ing against it.

One year later, a re­vised pro­posal of 2.9 mills for what would be­come West High School passed eas­ily. It did not in­clude money for a sta­dium.
