The Jefferson Board of Education is moving forward with renovations at Memorial Stadium. The board discussed plans for the site at its Jan. 14 meeting.
Superintendent John Jackson said three contractors recently did a walkthrough of the site and will submit proposals by Feb. 2.
The board hasn’t decided on what renovations will be made, but has discussed creating a soccer field at the site. Jackson said this will depend on the location.
“It’s all about location which could involve the reconfiguration of all of the practice fields,” he said.
Other plans discussed include the expansion of the visitor’s stands, railings and aisle space on the home stands. The board has also discussed plans to improve the field house, which could include expansion, replacement or major maintenance.
The board also discussed plans to fill in several potholes in the stadium parking lot. Maintenance director Russell Massey said the improvements could cost $1,000 and expects the problem to continue.
Other paving projects are planned in the Jefferson Elementary School parking lot.
