Help Support the SVC Plans

Bookmark and Share

Increasingly, individuals and groups who favor these plans have asked what they can do to express their support. In response, the University has created this page for anyone interested in learning more about what they can do to help make the SVC development a reality:

attend City Council meetings to express your support
write to your Davenport City Council member and the aldermen-at-large
write a letter to the editor of the Quad-City Times
join the independent "SAU Stadium Yes" Facebook or Twitter group
read stories, opinion pieces and letters about the SVC development
click on any of the links above to get more detailed information

Attend Davenport City Council meetings

When projects such as this go through the zoning process, there is often a vocal minority and a silent majority. If those in favor of the project are not engaged in voicing their support, it may appear that there is only opposition to the plans. Good turnout is crucial:

The Quad-City Times invites commentary from its readers. Send your letter of up to 250 words to opinions@qctimes.com. Please include your full name, address and phone number. All published letters include the writer's name and town of residence. The Times does not publish addresses or phone numbers, but requires both for verification.

"SAU Stadium Yes" Social Media

“SAU Stadium Yes” was created as a forum for "Citizens who support St. Ambrose University's plan for constructing an athletic facility for football, softball, soccer, track & field and lacrosse. We are not a sponsored group of St. Ambrose University or have any affiliation to the university." The Facebook site has more than 2,250 "likes," and the "SAU Stadium Yes" group recently added a Twitter account.
