On Tuesday, Virginia Tech's President agreed to the recommendations made by a committee to not build the facility on Stadium Woods.
Other potential sites are along Washington Street by the tennis courts.
Virginia Tech says they could chose a brand new site somewhere else on campus
A spokesperson says the new football facility will be built.
The only question is where and right now they don't have a timeline.
A controversial project at Virginia Tech will not be built as originally planned, saving Stadium Woods at least for now.
University officials confirm that a football practice facility will not be built as originally proposed. Critics of the plan said it would have destroyed a stand of old-growth trees on campus known as Stadium Woods.
University spokesman Larry Hincker said there are three other plans still under consideration. An entirely new plan could also be developed, Hincker said
Associate Athletic Director Tom Gabbard said the decision does not mean the facility won't be built in the future or that Stadium Woods won't be affected in some way.
In a letter to Virginia Tech President Charles Steger issued Monday, Vice President of Administrative Services Sherwood Wilson recommended accepting the recommendation of an advisory committee to not place the indoor practice facility in Stadium Woods.
According to a news release, Vice President of Administrative Services Sherwood Wilson has directed his staff to "evaluate the options presented by the Committee, as well as any other potential sites that may be appropriate.”
Virginia Tech does not plan to take action on another recommendation from the committee to place the woods in a conservation easement. Also, the school has not set a timetable for its next steps.
