TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
public got a chance to weigh in Thursday night on what will go into the new
stadium at Scott High School.
and Woodward high schools are the last two schools in the Toledo district with
no stadiums to call their own. But the start of the 2014 school year, they
could be the only schools in the district to have turf fields. At Scott, a
regulation track is the biggest question mark.
drawings were discussed with members of the Scott community on Thursday. The
school has allocated $1.1 million from a bond issue passed in the early 2000s
for the project, and now discussions have started as to what amenities the
stadium will include.
far, a turf field, bleachers and a press box are the top priorities. Those
items could use up the entire $1.1 million, and anything over that amount will
have to be raised by the community.
top priority is the regulation track. The only problem is there isn't enough
room behind the high school for it to fit unless the district acquires six
houses on Winthrop.
officials have already heard the owners of those homes don't want to sell. If
that's the case, three-quarters of a track could be built to fit around the
need to fully research all aspects of making sure that we can put the stadium
in for the benefit of the students," said Dr. Cecelia Adams, a member of the
school board. "Nobody wants to do anything that would upset the community or
district will develop a ‘Plan A' and ‘Plan B' design for the community to
choose from, and planning will start in late January. Construction will start
May 1 and end in mid July.
