Field and Play Space Reconfiguration: Next Steps

Dear Bronxville Community Members,

At our last Board of Education meeting on February 12, students, parents, and residents called on the Board of Education to resubmit the synthetic turf proposal to voters. The public participation portion of the meeting was largely devoted to the chronic need for additional field space. The Board took no position, expressing its interest in analyzing the referendum results and and listening to all of the comments from the public.

On Saturday, March 7 the Board will devote a portion of its budget workshop to this issue. We have asked our administrative team and professional consultants to reexamine the available data about usage and cost; adjust plans to accommodate the construction schedule for the flood mitigation project , and analyze the short and long term impact on Hayes Field.

We encourage the participation and/or the thoughts of our public on whether this proposal should be reconsidered for submission to the voters.


The Bronxville UFSD Board of Education
