The new Saint Paul Saints stadium took a major step forward on Wednesday.
The St. Paul City Council approved an $8.5 million bond issue for the $63 million stadium.
The city's overall contribution to the project is $24 million.
The stadium is under construction right now and is set to open in 2015.
Aside from Saints games, the stadium will host youth baseball, college games and non-sporting events like concerts.
