Dear KCS Parents and Families,
I wanted to provide you with some information that was proposed at tonight's Board of Education work session. At tonight's meeting,the Board heard a report from a committee of community members proposing improvements to J. Fred Johnson Stadium. The committee is made up of representatives from the Kingsport Chamber of Commerce, FunFest, D-B alumni, school administration, D-B athletics, and other various community stakeholders.
This evening, the committee recommended various improvements to the stadium, including safety upgrades, additional restroom facilities, track & field enhancements, concession stands, and increased seating capacity. As proposed, the project would be exclusively funded through the sale of Personal Seat Licenses (PSL's) to those who choose to sit in the new seating area, which would be located directly above the existing stadium seating.
The proposal from the committee is that the improvements, which would total approximately $3.5 million, would be paid for only by those wishing to sit in the new sections. Individuals wishing to keep their seats in the current seating areas would not have to purchase PSL's. In this proposal, KCS dollars are not being requested to fund these improvements. If approved by the Kingsport Board of Mayor and Aldermen and the Kingsport Board of Education, the improvements could be completed by the start of the 2012 football season.
Various information on the proposal has been compiled for you and is available by clicking here. Full meeting notes, as well as the committee's PowerPoint, is also available at that link. The community committee will be presenting their proposal to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen during their work session on Monday, February 20. Any formal consideration for approval by the Board of Education would not take place until March.
