SGA proposes $55,000 field

News Student Government

SGA has proposed the allocation of $55,000 for the construction of a student field, set to be voted upon next Monday evening.

Under the proposal, the practice field located behind Vaselakos residence hall will be transformed into the new Student Field, complete with signage, new outdoor lighting, an additional storage shed and two sets of bleachers donated from Western Athletics Department.

Approximately $15,000 for the new facility will be contributed by the Capital Projects Budget, and the remaining costs for the project will be funded by the the SGA Executive Board Rollover fund.

Priority use of the field will be reserved for the Golden Griffon Marching Band, Recreational Services and Registered Student Organizations.

While the original renovation costs will be covered by SGA, the marching band and Recreational Services will be responsible for annual upkeep, such as seeding and painting the field.
