In late 2012, a high school football stadium was built in Allen, Texas. It cost taxpayers $60 million.
By early 2014, the $60 million football stadium was shut down indefinitely because of cracks in the concrete. The stadium was declared unsafe and thus, unusable.
Two years later (2016), voters from McKinney, Texas, which is located just ten miles away from Allen, approved to finance a new football stadium of their own. The price tag is $62.8 million.
