    Kinda reads like mostly a lighting upgrade with other cosmetic changes. Are the stands wholly new?
  • adyonkaadyonka Wealthy Alum
    According to the release, “the complex will receive a new 700 seat bleacher structure and a complete re-skin and renovation of the existing press box” so parts are new and parts are renovations of existing features.

    The old bleachers were in a big pile last Saturday

    Will the "re-skin" be a "redskin"?

    I might be wrong but I think part of the issue for the fields is that it's in a low lying area and prone to being swampy/soft at best and flood prone at worst. Part of the rebuilding besides the stands and cosmetics etc. is improving the drainage and making the whole complex "dryer" and creating a better playing surface.

    I thought they addressed that problem 10-15 years ago.  Am I wrong?  Was it just talked about and never actually done ... like, oh maybe the major upgrades to Millett?

    They completed the geothermal field next to the soccer field and now it's time to upgrade the pitch.
