"Starting Monday, June 19, both turf fields, (FHS Pisini turf field and Beaver Pond Turf field) will be off-line and closed while renovations begin. FHS is expected to return to normal use on August 16 and Beaver Pond expected to open on September 1."
This action has been expected. It was discussed last year on the type of turf infill material to be used. It was agreed to use a different type than the crumb rubber that has been the cause of controversy. The money had been put aside for several years to help pay for the field replacements and finally voted for early this year.
