All three speakers stressed that the complex was a partnership between the schools and the City – neither could have afforded to do it on their own. There will be six lighted turf fields set up for multiple sports and a concession stand with a full service kitchen. The site will provide citizens with a trail network connecting to the surrounding neighborhood, a play area, and a community meeting room. This will be the premier sports facility in the area.
