Plan calls for capital campaign to renovate Ankeny Stadium -
A plan is being developed to renovate Ankeny Stadium in multiple phases using primarily private and corporate donations.  The plan is designed to provide better stadium facilities for the rapidly increasing population, while avoiding the use of tax funds, if possible.  The capital campaign to fund the project was recently launched with a cornerstone donation of $1,000,000 from Ankeny alumni Dennis and Sue Albaugh, which will provide the majority of the first phase of renovation.  Read more about this plan and see architect's renderings of the stadium here.
