Hampton field renovations get green light

| Thursday, February 24, 2011 12:00 a.m

The Hampton School District is moving ahead with the proposed high school field renovation project.

The proposal calls for renovating the high school baseball and recreation fields between the building and McCully Road.

The project will create a WPIAL regulation baseball field and multipurpose field. The estimated cost is $644,000 and does not include engineering, permit or inspection fees.

The plans that will go out for bid to construction companies will include an alternate bid that could allow the school board and administration to renovate the “totem field” between the building’s northeastern side and Topnick Drive — where the totem pole is located.

The totem field project would grade and level the field for multipurpose use and cost an estimated $99,000. District administrators hope to get a discount by combining the project with the baseball field work.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
