A steering committee met on Dec. 9 to consider converting the Farmington school district’s stadium to an all-weather activity complex. The group elected officials and agreed to examine options and cost feasibility of renovating the stadium and track facility at Farmington Senior High School.
The All Weather Activities Complex would have a synthetic surface on the playing field, while a conventional complex would involve bringing in dirt and seeding the playing field.
The committee is composed of local business and community leaders. The school’s athletic director, the director of instrumental music and the head football coach, along with representatives of the Alumni Association, represented the district at the meeting.
The group elected Chip Peterson as chairman with Keith Hutson as co-chair, Jon Cozean as communication chair and Dave Waters as secretary.
The high school marching band and members of the football team have stated their commitment to the project and have promised to assist in fund raising. The football team said it would raise $5,000 each year in support of the renovation.
The committee will gather additional information on costs and design projections for the stadium complex and will meet again in early January to consider options and funding sources.
