New Turf Field: Progress & Updates

 

On Thursday, August 3rd, AHA community members joined together to celebrate the groundbreaking of the new south athletic field. The new turf field, an important element in Academy of Holy Angels' long-range campus plan, will replace the existing natural grass and will be constructed to accommodate a future dome that will expand the capabilities of Holy Angels' well-known StarDome and will be domed in winter months.

We are pleased to report that phase one of the new turf athletic field is in full swing. Work is currently being done to prepare the new field area for proper drainage, field surface support, lighting needs, and utilities access for the dome mechanical equipment.

Other related facilities upgrades have also taken place during the summer months. The parking lot repaving project is almost complete. We will specifically be adding new speed-bumps at the entrance and exit driveways to help address any safety and traffic concerns raised by neighbors for increased field use on the new facility. Additionally, illuminated stop signs will be added at the exit driveways to serve as reminders to drivers to stop and drive slowly as they exit the parking lots.

Current schedule projects that the new outdoor playing surface will be completed by November 1, 2017.
