Provide Background Details and Rationale: This planned work is a result of the capital planning process conducted with building leaders and the district capital planning committee. The Board approved the replacement of the turf on the district soccer field and the addition of artificial turf on the practice football field at Park Hill South on March 29, 2018. This project was completed during the summer of 2018. The manufacturer and the type of turf for both Park Hill South and Park Hill campuses were identified during the planning process for the Park Hill South project.

This item represents the direct purchase of the artificial turf for the replacement of the district football field and the addition of a practice soccer field at Park Hill High School. The direct purchase will result in a significant savings avoiding contractor markup.

The project as a whole will result in the replacement of the artificial turf at the District Football Complex, the addition of artificial turf on a practice soccer field, the repair and resurfacing of the track, and the addition of lights to the baseball field.
Provide Funding Source and Estimated Cost: Funding will come from the proposed 2019-2020 maintenance and operations budget and the 2017 No-Tax Increase bond funds.

The total amount for both fields is $904,915.00

The information for the construction of the projects will be brought to the Board of Education as a separate item at a later date.
