Big plans for the Millcreek School District’s ball field has been placed on hold for the time being.
The $2 million renovation has been placed on hold due to the possible $5.4 million deficit the school could face.
The plan is to improve drainage at McDowell baseball and softball field, as well as adding turf, a new backstop, portable seating, and a sidewalk to the field.
The decision comes after parents and residents plea to reject the possibility of closing the Chestnut Hill Elementary School.
A consultant for the school district saying that the elementary needs work on accessibility, plumbing, and ventilation are just some of the improvements needed. This would cost the district $2.9 million.
The budget is set to be approved by June 30th.
