    Turf Fields In Jefferson County

    Iíve heard talk that the Jeff Co school board will install turf fields at a few schools during the off-season. One school that has been mentioned is Fern Creek. Has anyone heard if this is true or not?

    There was talk about it earlier in the season but haven’t heard much since then. Seemed was going to depend on budget and figure who would get them first.

    JCPS asked each of their members to submit a proposal for why their school should receive a turf field. That was back in the fall. I’d imagine they are in the first steps of deciding. Budgeting and implementation will come later.

    Ballard should be a top candidate.

    I agree. May as well do that while rebuilding the stadium.

    I work in commercial construction estimating. As public jobs (jobs with city/county/state/federal funding), the field renovations for turf would have to be publicly advertised open bids. I can tell you from keeping up with jobs out for bid in the plan rooms that JCPS hasn't put anything out to bid yet.

    It would certainly make sense to do so, but as it stands I don't think a turf field is being planned at Ballard while they're redoing the stadium.
