AVON, May 8 – The Avon Town Council will consider a $3.21 million proposal to build a multi-purpose synthetic turf field at Avon High School at its next regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday, June 4, town officials said Friday.
A subcommittee of the town’s Recreation and Park Committee voted unanimously in late April to recommend the proposal be brought to the Council for their consideration.
The proposal includes a new synthetic turf field to replace the current grass football field, a new eight-lane track and field facility, bleachers that would seat 1,000 fans, a press box, a scoreboard and lights. The proposal also includes installing a second synthetic turf field where the current field hockey field is located.
The main bleachers and press box would be in their current location with seating for 250 fans closer to the baseball field.
The town has been examining proposals for synthetic turf fields since February 2014. Click on the link below for our most recent story for additional information.
