FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Colorado State University has been cutting back on seats with chair backs, elevators and other amenities in order to keep plans for a new on-campus stadium within its $220 million budget.

The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports (https://noconow.co/1Hj4QL5 ) that documents show eliminating more than 4,000 seats with backs in grandstands will save the school an estimated $472,000. Officials also dropped two of six planned elevators to serve club seating areas in order to help pay for a $1.19 million field-level club seating area.

Additional modifications were still being discussed in weekly meetings last month.

The new stadium replaces the existing facility on the west side of the city and is expected to be completed in time for the 2017 football season.
