Summer projects include "green" turf replacement at UAHS

The turf field was not replaced during the facilities master planning construction phase because it had not yet reached the end of its useful life. 

The district is partnering with the Motz Group for this project, which will utilize every piece of the current turf field for either reuse, recycling or upcycling. For instance, the current infill will be reused on our stadium field, the old turf will be upcycled to serve as a new pad for another Motz Project, and the existing pad will be recycled.

Previously, Upper Arlington Schools worked with the Motz Group on the Upper Arlington High School practice fields completed during the master planning project at the corner of Ridgeview and Brandon roads. These fields reused infill from another turf replacement project being done by the Motz Group.

The Ted Wolford Field project will be funded through permanent improvement money.

Additional summer projects will include: roofing work on the original part of Barrington Elementary School; window replacement in the original part of Tremont Elementary School; parking lot resealing at Wickliffe Progressive and Greensview elementary schools, as well as the district’s Graf Center; and tennis court resurfacing at Jones Middle School.
