The renovations include a new field house, new visitors locker room, new restrooms for home and visitors stands and other changes and improvements. The proposed cost of the project is estimated between $2.8 and $3.1 million and is scheduled to be completed by the beginning of next school year. The renovations will be funded by ESPLOST IV. The BOE should vote on this project in 2014.
