The District proposes to demolish the existing track and field, associated structures (including bleachers, scoreboard , press box, public address/sound system, equipment, and storage shed/building) , and the three existing buildings. The proposed project would relocate existing storage containers to another location on the MVHS campus. The proposed project would install a synthetic turf field, rubberized high jump and pole vault area, rubberized long jump/triple jump and synthetic turf warm-up area, and 400 meter 9-lane rubberized track The proposed project would install new bleachers with a total capacity of 2,000 spectators. The new bleachers on the visitors' side would provide 300 seats, and the home grandstands with a new press box on the home side of the field would accommodate 1,700 seats. Additionally, the District proposes to construct a home concession/ticket/restroom building, electrical and utility storage, landscape synthetic turf, new trash/recycling enclosure, and storage building. Stadium improvements would include a new field lighting system, site improvements for path of travel, and installation of a new scoreboard and flagpoles as well as a new public address system/sound to replace the old public address/sound system. To the northwest of the proposed stadium improvement, there would be construction of a discus cage with natural turf landing area and a shot put area. The proposed project would also add three sand volleyball courts and four pickleball courts. Cell/electrical equipment would be removed and/or relocated as part of the proposed project.
Attendance at sporting events has declined over the years, so the seating capacity of the new bleachers has been reduced to 2,000 spectators. The proposed project would not change the basic functions of the project site nor increase the number of events. The proposed project would not alter the existing vehicle or pedestrian access and would not lead to an increase in student enrollment at the MVHS campus. Overall, the proposed project would benefit the MVHS students, staff, and the general community by providing enhanced educational and athletic facilities.
