    There are things that visitors look for in an opponent's stadium.
    1. Ease of finding the stadium.
    2. How safe they and their vehicles will be in the parking lot.
    3. Clear view of the field and ability to hear the announcers.
    4. Good variety and price at the concessions.
    5. Safety in the stands.
    6. Ramps and provisions for wheel chair patrons on both sides of the field.
    7. Clean and safe restrooms.
    Kermit Courville Stadium, nee Public School Stadium, has fallen short on parking lot safety over the years. If this plan can improve safety with added lighting and the presence of security it might be worth the investment. The City of Galveston has a vested interest in this project. We're talking about thousands of potential return visitors for other venues to the island if things go right. To the natives, its a matter of civic pride and your safety too.
