If you moan about it, Greg McGarity will come.
In an effort to enhance the game day experience for our fans, we are pleased to report that planning for Phase III of the Sanford Stadium restroom renovations currently under way and scheduled for completion prior to the start of the 2017 season. Previously, restrooms on level 100 of the south and southeast side were renovated in Phase I prior to the 2015 season. Phase II, completed prior to the season, included renovations to restrooms on the 300 level of the south and southeast side. Renovations on all remaining restrooms on the 100, 200 and 300 levels throughout the stadium concourses will be expedited and completed prior to the 2017 season.
These renovations will include the addition of all touchless fixtures, LED lighting, new flooring, new exhaust fans, and new paint matching the recent renovations (as seen below). We look forward to these renovations and the continued improvement on our gameday experience.
Concessions upgrades are also promised for the start of the 2017 season.
Way to go, Mr. McGarity. In the immortal words of Rod Tidwell, you’re a little slow, but you come around.
No, I’m not taking a victory lap. (I’m not worthy, but, yeah, I admit to feeling a little of what Jeremy Pruitt must have felt when they broke ground on the IPF.) Although the effort is certainly appreciated — as such, I’ll refrain from snarkily asking which donors have stepped up on the potty front — it never should have come down to making the case in the media, social and traditional, to prod the athletic director into what have been and are painfully obvious steps.
What I’d really like to be able to celebrate at some point is McGarity being meaningfully proactive about the fans’ game day experience. Hey, a whiner can dream, can’t he?
