Sonoma: Please support the redevelopment of the athletic facilities at SVHS!

This petition had 553 supporters

As most of you are aware, SVUSD is in the process of reviewing and prioritizing the "master plan" for improving the facilities at our schools. Facility upgrades will be paid for by Measure E funds (Measure E funds can only be used for school owned facilities, NOT Arnold Field, for example). One of the projects included in the high school master plan is redeveloped athletic fields (new turf field for football and soccer surrounded by a track and new baseball and softball fields). The current athletic facilities have deteriorated to the point that it would be difficult to find a high school in neighboring communities with worse athletic fields than Sonoma Valley High. The list of athletic events that we can no longer host at home is getting quite long (See Bill Hoban's article in May 16th Sonoma Index Tribune). Due to our inadequate facilities, the district pays to rent fields owned by other entities at a significant cost to the district. Most community members are in support of the redeveloped athletic fields. However, there is a small but vocal group of community members who live in the neighborhood adjacent to the high school property who are opposed to this redevelopment. The district needs to hear the voices of those in favor of this project!! If you are in support of the redevelopment of the high school athletic facilities, please plan on attending a meeting on Tuesday, June 20 at 3:00 PM in the Pavilion at Sonoma Valley High School. The purpose of this meeting will be to prioritize the facility upgrades presented at last Tuesday's meeting. Once again, there will be time for public comments. We need to emphasize that the athletic facilities are a top priority. The opponents of the new athletic facilities have promised to attend. So, its important for us to show up in numbers on June 20 and provide more community feedback.
Please show up on June 20th.  Show your Dragon pride by wearing green.  Both adults and students are encouraged to attend!! In the meanwhile, please sign and share our petition to support the redevelopment of SVHS athletic facilities. Thank you!
