Sparta High School has proposed a new multi-purpose turf field that will cost and estimated $3 million to $3.5 million. According to Superintendent Michael Rossi, the field will be paid for entirely from the school district's capital reserve.
The field, which has been a proposed idea for over a decade, has a targeted completion date of August meaning high school athletes could begin using it for the 2019-2020 school year. It will be built on Cassels Field and include a new scoreboard, lighting, goalposts, an improved drainage system, new visiting bleachers, and updates to the home side bleachers.
All the required environmental and additional permits are reportedly in place.
