LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Proposals are now being accepted for who will lease and use Loeb Stadium.
During the Lafayette Parks and Rec board meeting Monday afternoon the RFP (Request for Proposal) was granted.
This means interested companies or organizations must submit bids for the city to review by April 6th.
That includes the Lafayette Aviators, whose previous contract expired at the end of last season.
The $17 million taxpayer stadium will hold about 2,000 people and include indoor and outdoor suites.
Mayor Tony Roswarski said entertainment value is important in Lafayette.
That's why he hopes Loeb will be a multi-use venue.
"We are building it absolutely to be multi-use," said Roswarski. "We want it to be a baseball stadium. We want a soccer team in there. We can play a football game in there if we want to. We are looking at doing movie nights. We have wired it to hold concerts there."
The Lafayette Parks Board will choose top bidders on June 8th.
There could be multiple contracts accepted.
Those should be finalized by August 10th.
