NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- The artificial turf surface on the playing field of New Canaan High School is at the end of its life and needs to be replaced, Athletic Director Jay Egan, told the Board of Education during a recent meeting, according to the NCAdvertiser.
The project to replace the turf, raised 100 percent through private donates, is expected to cost between $400,000 and $500,000. Egan is looking at several types of fill for the replacement, including black crumb rubber and an organic infill, said the NCAdvertiser.
In addition to the turf replacement, the board also heard from Gary Kass, director of human resources, who reported that elementary enrollment is up 25 students over last year and that enrollment rose by five students at Saxe Middle School and three students at the high school, added the NCAdvertiser.
