At Town Meeting in May 2015, $75,000 was appropriated to design and build a sports wall at Weston High School. The School Committee determined that the location and design for the sports wall needed to be considered within the context of the master plan for the track and the fields.
The addition of artificial turf on Proctor Field would shift the field utilization by teams, which impacts the design considerations for the sports wall. A redesign of the track will also involve the relocation of events like discus, shot put and javelin, which also impacts potential locations for the sports wall. Thus, the design of the sports wall project has been combined with the track and Proctor Field renovations.
For efficiency and safety, the wall will be built in conjunction with the track and field renovation.
