Design Engineering Continues for Synthetic Turf Fields at Deerpath Community Park

At the City Council Meeting on Tuesday, September 6, 2022 staff provided a status update on the Deerpath Park Synthetic Turf Field Project at the 50% design milestone. The status update included a summary of the work of the City Manager's Advisory Group and the Advisory Group's recommendations. View the City Council Meeting Video to watch the presentation and discussion. 

After discussion, City Council provided direction consistent with the City Manager’s Advisory Group's recommendations (no formal action was taken). The City Council showed support for the Advisory Group’s recommendation to finalize the field design based on a 9.5-acre synthetic turf configuration, direct staff to select turf field material options based on certain evaluation criteria (player safety, playability, maintenance demands, durability, and environmental sensitivity) and continue to develop the Conceptual Vision Plan to guide long-term planning for Deerpath Park. 

Once the design phase is complete, the City Council will consider funding project construction and discuss next steps. We look forward to sharing updates with the community as the project moves forward.
