Plans for A&M's Kyle Field Expansion Get Boost From College Station

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION Redevelopment plans for Texas A&M's Kyle Field have gotten another financial boost.

The College Station City Council Thursday night voted for a funding agreement with A&M for the payment of reserve un-allocated hotel occupancy taxes for the expansion of Kyle Field.

The city says that would amount to about $14-million-dollars over the next 30 years.

In exchange, College Station would get special discounted rates on the use of A&M facilities for special events.

The new and improved Kyle Field with a seating capacity of 102-thousand-500 is set for completion in 2015 at a total estimated cost of $450-million-dollars.
