    Idea for the main parking lot at JAS

    I was at Reliant stadium this weekend and I noticed that some of the parking lots had a grass surface. Upon closer inspection of these lots, I noticed that the grass and dirt were held in place by a sort of grid placement of some pipe-like structure. Apparently, this structure allows cars to park and drive over the grass, without making ruts or disturbing the surface.

    I was thinking that such a surface would be ideal at JAS, due to the fact that many tailgate on the parking lot. The concrete surface gets mighty hot in the early part of the season. Having a grass surface should cool things down and make the parking lot a better place for tailgating.

    Thoughts?

    We can't maintain the parking lot stripes. And you want us to have to MOW the parking lot?

    It would be a great idea but we could spend our money in so many different and better ways right now. Now when we get a retractable roof on JAS then I think we should look into this. At least for the top level of the accompaning parking garage!:icon_wink:

    Oh don't give the guy a hard time because he posted something that was talked about before. If we demanded original thought BB&B would die out!

    Hey, isn't it about time we talk about selling beer at JAS?.............again!

    I thought so.


    But there is no problem bringing it up again. Any day now we'll have a 20 page thread on playing ULM and then another on dream conferences. It's the offseason. It's what we do.

    NT is incorporating this type of parking lot into the new stadium structure. Part of making it the first "Green" (no pun intended) stadium built.

    Right! so kids can play a little tackle football on gameday while tailgating. In fact, given it's the Belch, it would be the best football played that day !





    (j/k) I know most Belt teams could beat a bunch of kids in a game...

    the best thing for parking would be to require all tailgating on the grass areas. Let people park in the parking lot like they are supposed to. Then you could open the whole Rugby field for tents and tailgaters. No ruts in the grass if you do that.
