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

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:

“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.
SAU has compiled links to some of the pieces that have been written about the SVC plans. Click here to jump to the SVC Stories and Letters page.
