Supervisors approve funding for turf field at Stone Bridge

The Loudoun Board of Supervisors approved $750,000 in funding Wednesday night to install artificial turf at Stone Bridge High School's football field. The funding is contingent upon the Stone Bridge Booster Club contributing $250,000 for the project, and there's a chance the turf field will be ready by the 2015 football season.

The $750,000 is coming from general fund balance.

Supervisors voiced their belief and referenced studies noting that turf fields have a longer life span than grass, and the investment pays for itself after seven or eight years.

I was all ready to support SB booster club towards turf field since my kids graduated from SB except in the last round of HS boundaries…. Our community was moved to a new school(even though we’re a mile or less from SB and new MS).....Blame the corrupt School Board for lack of common sense and logic.

I’ve played a lot of golf courses & I’ve yet to see a roundabout in the middle of one.

For those who are attending public schools to excel in their education, this is a real slap in the face.  Where is the money for summer school.  Where is the money for upgrades to computers, etc.  But, Ken Reid managers to spend money on this.  I point out Ken Reid, because Ken Reid voted against the reduced tax rate because it was too low, and wanted it to be higher, and then votes to spend money this way?  Ken Reid is really untrustworthy.

A turf field here a roundabout there, not a big deal right.
Loudoun County paying for a roundabout in Fairfax right in the middle of 4 golf courses, no graft here!
