Temple University released more details about its proposed football stadium on Wednesday, less than a month after the school cut short[1] a community town hall where administrators had planned to present the information.

The new specifics, first published in the Temple News[2], are meant to ease the worries of community members, who fear that a football stadium would contribute to gentrification of the surrounding neighborhood through increased rent and home prices, as well as create noise, trash, and traffic issues.

Per a presentation[3] created by Dozie Ibeh, associate vice president of Temple’s Project Delivery Group, here’s what the university has to say about the stadium:
