Public Invited to March 13 Meeting on Muir High School Sports Field Improvement Project

MARCH 13 MEETING ON MUIR HIGH PROPOSED SPORTS FIELD IMPROVEMENTS 

PASADENA, Calif.—The public is invited to join District 1 Councilmember Jacque Robinson and officials from the Pasadena Unified School District and Pasadena’s Department of Public Works for an important meeting on the proposed multi-use sports field improvement project for Muir High School.   

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 13, in the Muir High School Auditorium, 1905 Lincoln Ave.  Staff will provide a presentation, followed by questions and input from the public.  Parking is available at the school. 

The City is proposing a multi-use sports field improvement project for the Muir High School campus as part of the Fiscal 2014 Capital Improvement Program.  This project would improve the existing south field to include a full-size soccer field, reconfigured softball field, turf renovation, irrigation system upgrades, sports field lighting and various on-site furnishings.  The fields would be available for public use during non-school hours. 

The majority of the project’s funding would come from a $1 million State grant awarded to the City in 2005.  That money was initially intended for athletic field improvements in the Hahamonga Watershed Park.  During the planning process for that project, however, both the 2009 Station Fire and extensive community input prompted the City to seek alternative locations for an improved athletic field. 

The City must apply for the transfer of these funds to the Muir High School project and strong community support is a critical first step in the process. 

For questions or additional information regarding the meeting, contact Loren Pluth with Public Works at (626) 744-7329 or by email to lpluth@cityofpasadena.net.
