The field at Joel Barlow High School is completed. Easton and Redding students will soon be able to use it for games, now that a partial certificate of observation has been granted. Work started last fall to turn the grass field to turf.
The Redding Pilot reports that there is still some work that needs to be done at the stadium.
The ends of the field, shaped like Ds, are being sprayed with a layer of foam and painted to match the track color. The Region 9 Board of Education recently approved more than $27,000 for that work, which some say is unnecessary. Others say it will make the track safer.
