Master plan for ULL athletics facilities unveiled

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The University of Louisiana at Lafayette could start work on $115 million in new construction and improvements of its athletic facilities as early as this summer. 

Athletics Director Scott Farmer said Thursday the projects to improve facilities for student-athletes and fans are outlined in a master plan for athletics that was developed over the past eight months to address current and future needs of all athletic programs. 

Farmer said the plans involve major renovations to Cajun Field and development of an athletic "village" that connects the other athletic fields to create a sense of community for fans and athletics. 

The Advocate reports a capital campaign to fund the master plan will be announced later this spring.
