About the project

The McKinley Field project is a $7.1 million renovation that will provide updated athletic facilities to Central High School students and coaches. The project will allow us to provide:

  • New synthetic turf football field and track with bleachers and lighting
  • New outbuilding with lockers, toilets, storage and concessions
  • Natural turf, practice football field
  • New parking
  • Adding on-site water detention to improve stormwater runoff
