GONZALES — On Monday, July 24, a special Gonzales Unified School District Board of Trustees meeting will take place at the Gonzales High School library to discuss the completion of the stadium project.
Funding had already been approved for the track renovation by Measure K, and the informational meeting will provide the opportunity for District residents to hear from project architect Luis Vargas and to discuss the playing field material.
The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m.
The school board may take action at the meeting regarding the playing field material.
Gonzales High School is the only public school in Monterey County with a dirt track, and the facility opened in 1966.
Along with the track renovation to an eight-lane, all-weather surface, the stadium will be upgrading to be ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant, including wheelchair seating, a revamping of structures and accessible routes entering and leaving the stadium.
Parents, students, staff and the community are encouraged to attend the meeting to hear the presentation by Vargas and give stakeholder input during public comments.
