Ygnacio Valley High School's sports field may soon be busier and brighter, despite concern from neighbors who say planned improvements amount to creating a "complete sports arena."
The Mount Diablo Unified School District will vote Wednesday on the environmental impact report for the Ygnacio Valley High sports field improvement project. Proposed additions to the sports field include stadium lighting, a sound wall, a concession stand and restroom building, a PA system, a press box and a ticket booth — all with the aim of enabling evening sports events and encouraging more community participation.
Community members will have an opportunity for public comment during the MDUSD board meeting Wednesday. Aug. 14 at 7:30 p.m. in the School District Board Room at 1936 Carlotta Drive, Concord. If the environmental impact report is approved, the board could green light the project in its next meeting on Aug. 28.
