The Weston Field Study Committee is in the thick of $12 million worth of improvements to the town's playing fields and sports parks over the next ten years. The committee updated the Board of Selectmen on its progress last Tuesday.
Committee Chair Bob Crowley, reached after the meeting, said that they are completing "Phase Zero" of the project, which included the conversion of a former septic field between the middle and high schools into a multi-use playing field.
Now designed to accommodate softball, t-ball, soccer and lacrosse, it will be officially inaugurated at Weston High School's first varsity softball game in April.
The last stage of this phase is $1 million worth of improvements to the high school gymnasium - including new floors, bleachers, lighting and sound system - that will begin after school ends in June.
Future phases include the expansion and redesign of College Pond park and improvement of drainage, parking, fencing and irrigation at the town's other fields and facilities.
