Groton athletic fields need your help

In 2019, the Athletic Field Task Force was formed by the Groton Town Council to research the needs of athletic fields in Groton and to present a recommendation to meet those needs. After nine months of speaking to athletic organizations, the high school athletic staff, subject matter experts and community members, the task force presented their findings and recommendations to the council. These findings showed that not only are there an insufficient number of fields in Groton but also that the existing fields are woefully inadequate in terms or ADA compliance, gender equality and overall amenities.

Groton Parks and Recreation has included a Capital Improvement Plan project in the fiscal-year 2022 budget request to provide conceptual design, surveys, and cost estimates for the proposed solutions to the field shortages and inadequacies. I am asking for support from the Groton community to reach out to the council, the Board of Education, and the Representative Town Meeting and tell them you support this next step in addressing the field shortage in town.

Below is a link to a website that provides the presentation, background, data, and details, https://www.groton-ct.gov/business_detail_T12_R178.php
