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.
