Posted May 23, 2007 8:05 p.m. EDT

— Shaw University is asking the city of Raleigh for $4 million.

The school wants to build a recreation center on campus that would include an indoor track.

Mayor Charles Meeker and City Council members will discuss the request.

Shaw announced last week that it plans to use Durham County Stadium for its football games, beginning this fall. Efforts to arrange a plan for a stadium that Shaw, St. Augustine’s College and the city could use did not succeed.
