|Department:||Transportation & Parks||Sponsors:|
To the Honorable Board:
I hereby request, subject to the approval of your Honorable Board, an appropriation in the amount of $375,000 in order to construct a U8 sized, turf soccer field at the Winter Hill Community Innovation School. To meet said appropriation, the Treasurer will be authorized to borrow $375,000 as provided by MGL Chapter 44.
The WHCIS U8 Turf Soccer Field in Winter Hill will provide essential open space and recreational programming for Somerville public schools, youth soccer leagues, intramural teams, and weekend competitions. This field will provide a safe surface for the school children of WHCIS who presently play soccer on the asphalt, and address the critical shortage of field hours that youth residents of Somerville face.
My staff will be available to answer any questions you may have. Thank you for your consideration of this matter.
Joseph A. Curtatone, Mayor
