UNM Stadium Area Master Plan

UNM has released information on a Master Plan for the stadium area. An interactive page has been created that allows visitors to click on completed projects (such as the indoor football practice facility and impressive accompanying landscaping) and planned upgrades (such at the Pit). Probably most welcome is the comprehensive landscaping plan featuring numerous trees that is sorely needed. Cannot tell if restaurants are included but they would be a welcome addition to the game day experience; as will be the planned Rail Runner stop on Cesar Chavez. Speaking of, a Rail Runner official told me in December there was a good chance the station would be available for football games. I'm a bit skeptical of that target date as I have yet to see activity on the station.
