PEORIA, Ill. -- District 150 officials have confirmed they are looking into the possibility of selling Peoria Stadium.

The historic stadium is currently being used for Central, Manual and Peoria Notre Dame football. The District is has a long-term lease with the Peoria Park District, which could complicate a possible sale.

District Officials say the stadium is in need of repair and they are exploring all options. They say they have had talks with a developer who says Wal-Mart is showing interest in the land.

City officials said they have heard many ideas for the property.

However, no city, school or park district officials would go on camera to talk about this issue saying it is too pre-mature at this point.
