HOUSTON (AP) - They say it's more of a concept than a plan, but the Houston Texans and Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo have developed a $66 million idea that involves demolishing the historic Astrodome.

The 37-page booklet mostly of artist renderings obtained by The Associated Press late Thursday shows the domed stadium replaced with a green space and ''Astrodome Hall of Fame.''

A brochure shows a construction timetable that ends with the 2017 Super Bowl - but would have started work June 2.

Rodeo operations chief Leroy Shafer says, in reality, there is no timetable because the plan is not being placed before the Harris County commissioners for a decision on the county-owned stadium.

The plan was first reported by the Houston Chronicle.
