Here is the letter Wood sent to Belmont:
8 November 2008
President Bob Fisher
1600 Belmont Boulevard
Requested Action Belmont University should re-evaluate stadium construction plans in Rose Park
Dear President Bob Fisher:
I believe Belmont University should now re-evaluate apparent plans to build three intercollegiate stadiums in Rose Park. This is a very intrusive action which gained approval after Belmont University railroaded and manipulated the largely poor, elderly, and minority neighborhood. Metropolitan government failed abysmally. There was no independent review by the University or Metro of alternatives to an unprecedented take over of a large portion of a public park for use by a private university.
Now, Greer Stadium is undergoing capitol improvements. There is a new mayor. Belmont University would greatly benefit our city by having a professional, independent facilities study done including actual practice space needed by each team.
I believe proceeding along the current path will lead to an indelible mark on Belmont University and Nashville.
