The Roberts Stadium saga took another twist at Monday night’s Evansville City Council meeting, this time away from razing the former home of UE basketball.

C&P reporter John Martin writes: “The council denied a request from Mayor Lloyd Winnecke’s administration to transfer $187,000 in net proceeds from the auction of Roberts assets into an account for demolition.

“Councilman Dan Adams moved to reject the transfer and was joined by Council President Connie Robinson, Finance Chair John Friend, Missy Mosby, Stephanie-Brinkerhoff-Riley and Al Lindsey. Dan McGinn, Conor O’Daniel and Jonathan Weavervoted against the motion.

“Adams, an at-large Democrat, said he wants the city to attempt to sell the property.”

The latest story explains that a private developer could choose to tear down Roberts Stadium, where the Aces played from 1956-2011, or repurpose it. The city’s original estimates only included demolition, not what would be done with the property next.

When I first came to Evansville during the summer of 2011 as an intern at the newspaper, the Ford Center had yet to be named, and the thought that UE wasn’t going to play in Roberts Stadium again was still fresh.

Obviously after a season in the new arena, much of that sentiment has dissipated. The Aces have a new home, and city officials have a business decision to make regarding a facility with quite a bit of history.

So my question to you — the folks who spent time and money over the years in Roberts Stadium — is simple: How would you like to see this all end?

    I would like to see them try and sell it. It seems like a no brainer to me, why not try to get a little money out of it, instead of spending a huge amount to tear it down. Whoever buys it can then decide what to do with it.
