GREENWICH, Conn. – The Greenwich school district has KG+D Architects to begin work on a Cardinal Field Feasibility Study to make improvements on the sports field at Greenwich High — and they are looking for input from the public.
The purpose of the Feasibility Study is to review possible approaches for repairing and/or improving Cardinal Field and the grounds and facilities surrounding the field.
The study will not result in a single plan, but a variety of options for the GPS administration and the Board of Education to consider, the school district announced.
The scope of the feasibility project focuses on health and safety priorities to include handicapped access to the facility, including parking, bleacher access, structural issues with the existing bleachers, first aid facilities, safe access and security, and required updates and repairs to aging elements of the facility. In addition, the project will include consideration of possible upgrades of the field area to better serve the community.
The architects are in the early stages of conducting the feasibility study and are running focus groups to gather input from key stakeholders that use the fields. The Greenwich community is welcome to provide feedback via an online form. This feedback will be used to refine and prioritize possible approaches in repairing and/or improving the Cardinal Field facility.
A review of the approaches will be conducted by the Cardinal Field Feasibility Study Committee and the Board of Education through public meetings. Additional public hearing opportunities are available at Board of Education business meetings. The final approach will involve a number of approvals and permits and will address existing agreements and ordinances.
