Minnesota State College – Southeast Technical and Winona State University will host a community meeting about the proposal to partner on a new baseball field at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13, in the Main Lobby of the Southeast Technical Winona Campus, 1250 Homer Road, Winona, MN. Parking is available directly in front of the building; enter through the front doors.
Before beginning any design work on the proposed project, Southeast Technical and WSU are soliciting community input to assess the feasibility of developing a seven-acre parcel of land on the Southeast Technical Winona campus as the new location for WSU’s baseball field. The meeting is designed to answer questions and gather input from members of the community.
A new location for WSU’s baseball field is necessary for the Warriors baseball team to host regional and national NCAA competition, as the baselines at WSU’s Loughrey Field do not meet NCAA standards. The ability to host these competitions in Winona will help attract tourism to Winona and draw additional income for Winona businesses.
The proposed collaboration would reflect an expansion of the shared services already in place between WSU and Southeast Technical, and be a model of higher education partnership for the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system.
