Galveston ISD to discuss stadium at meeting

The Galveston Independent School District will hold a public information meeting on a proposed new multi-sports stadium for the island.

The new complex would host athletic, band and drill team events along with graduation ceremonies and concerts. Island residents will vote next month on a $35 million bond election to pay for stadium construction.

Opponents of the project say the price tag is more than twice as much as what other school districts in the state have paid for new stadiums.
