It's been nearly four years since Texas Stadium was imploded.

And now we're finally getting a better idea of what may happen to the former home of the Dallas Cowboys.

The City of Irving held a public meeting Monday evening to get input and to show off some possible redevelopment plans.

One idea is a "Stadium Park," with an athletic field in the middle of the development.

Another option is a "Town Square" surrounded by offices and retail shops and with a stadium at one end.

Or how about "The Avocado"? Shaped like the fruit, it's a mixed-use development.

The 79-acre site at the confluence of Loop 12, Highway 114 and the Airport Expressway also has DART rail access and is considered a big part of Irving's future.

In the coming months, the city will work toward finalizing a development plan incorporating ideas from the various proposals.
