A public hearing on a proposed multi-purpose athletic field at Oxford High School will be held on Monday, July 9, at Town Hall at 7 p.m.
That is what the Board of Finance decided Monday night (June 26, 2012) after discussing the project during its regularly scheduled meeting.
The Board of Selectmen wants to borrow money through a bond to pay for the project, which is proposed at $3.1 million. The proposal includes a synthetic turf field where Oxford High School students could play football, soccer or possibly lacrosse and field hockey one day if the school gets the two latter sports. The field would be surrounded by an eight-lane track. The proposal includes bleachers, lights and a press box.
At the Monday, July 9, meeting, residents will have an opportunity to discuss all aspects of the proposal.
