If you’ve passed by the Maroa-Forsyth schools campus recently, you may notice their football field is under construction and that project is nearing completion.
The district is installing an artificial turf surface to the football field and an all weather track around the outside. Superintendent of Maroa-Forsyth Schools Mike Williams explains that project was expected to be done over the summer, but with the mild winter, they are way ahead of schedule.
The football field project expects to be complete by the end of this week. Williams says logos are down on the field and the end zone is complete. The football field will also serve as the districts soccer field. The track teams’ meets are all away and they are being creative for their practice sites.
The upgrades being done to the football field are considered phase one of what will be a four phase facility update to the district. Williams says the last thing left on phase one will be to make the high school more energy efficient, which will have to wait for the summer.
Phase two includes additions to the high. Phase three includes another addition to the grade school. The final phase is a replacement of the 1928 middle school. Williams says phase three is dependent on the classroom growth of that level. He says current projections are estimating they will need to add sections onto current classes.
