The Colorado State University System’s Board of Governors voted Friday to approve a plan to sell the site of Hughes Stadium to the City of Fort Collins, according to a resolution from the board.

The approval of the plan, which involves the sale of approximately 161 acres for $12.5 million, was the next step in a process delineated by a Memorandum of Understanding that the City entered into with CSU in August 2021. The CSU System Assistant Vice Chancellor for External Relations, Tiana Kennedy, said the resolution is just authorization to continue moving forward with the sale, and that the CSU System is still “several steps off from any sale.”
