Temple Seeking Civic Approval For On-Campus Football Stadium
Temple is "ready to take another key step toward its goal of having an on-campus football stadium," as the university will "file a project submission" to Philadelphia's City Planning Commission seeking approval for the 35,000-seat venue. A Temple official said that the measure "must go through" the commission, the zoning board and then Philadelphia City Council. Temple President Richard Englert "estimated the entire process could take five months." This has been a "deliberate process for Temple," as it began in February '16 (PHILLY.com, 1/18).
