Sports Facility Renovations Taking Shape

If you’ve recently noticed the football field bleachers and old blue press box missing as you’ve driven by the high school, it’s because much needed sports facility renovations are under way.

The Perry-Lecompton USD #343 Board of Education recently approved upgrades to a number of the district’s sports facilities.  The board took action in October and November after many months of planning and discussions.  Work has already begun on several of the projects in preparation for this year’s track & field and softball seasons and next year’s football and tennis seasons.  Below is a brief overview of the planned projects:

    1. Multipurpose Building
         Expanded and modernized restroom facilities
         Enclosed concession area with electrical and plumbing upgrades
         Expanded serving, preparation and storage areas

    2. Sidewalks/Patio
         Sidewalks installed to bleachers on home and visitor’s sides
         Expanded concrete patio areas near concessions and home bleachers

    3. Bleachers/Press Box
         Aluminum bleacher seating for approximately 1,500 on the home side
        10” x 30” seat configuration will allow for added seating comfort and visibility
         36’ x 8’ Press box


     4. Football Field Lighting
          New light poles will be installed

     5. Tennis Courts
         Two post-tension tennis courts will be built south of the PLHS gym

    6.  Softball Field (Located adjacent to PES)
          All new fencing will be installed around the field including a new backstop
         Field lighting and a scoreboard will be installed
         New dugouts will be built

It is estimated that the total costs of the facility upgrades will be approximately $850,000.  The projects will be financed through a combination of capital outlay funds and a lease purchase agreement.
