SALINA, Kan. (AP) — A Salina commission has approved plans to demolish a stadium at Kansas Wesleyan University.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/14NupqY ) the Salina Heritage Commission voted unanimously Wednesday to approve the demolition of Glenn Martin Stadium at Kansas Wesleyan University. Wesleyan wants to tear down the grandstand to make way for a new athletic complex.

Wesleyan has been playing its football games at Salina Stadium since 2007 because of the condition of the old stadium, which was built in 1940.

The city designated the structure a Heritage Conservation property in 1997 because of its historical significance.
