Special Project: Athletic Master Plan
Athletic Master Plan Fundraising
Over the years, we have kept a running list of needs for our athletic facilities. The TVS Buildings and Grounds Committee recently tasked Good Fulton & Farrell (GFF) to translate this list into an athletic master plan. Enhancements identified surround our north and south fields and stadium area in addition to the potential of repurposing existing spaces in the athletic complex. The plan can be easily broken down into smaller projects to make fundraising and construction more achievable. We are currently raising funds for the south field project!
Fieldhouse with restrooms, concessions and storage
Everyone will benefit!
Our field hockey, soccer, lacrosse, softball and baseball fans will especially appreciate these enhancements, but the additions will serve our entire school community, with parking serving as just one example. Parking is an issue for parents and students on a daily basis and leaves even more to be desired when we have special events, performances and games, often resulting in people parking in less safe locations. For example, in the spring, we often have up to 75 cars parking in the vacant lot across Dutch Branch Road and additional cars filling the right lane of Dutch Branch Road for softball and baseball games. And when parking is depleted in the evenings on the north side of campus, people park in the business lots across Bryant Irvin Road at the entrance of Mira Vista and run across the busy street in the dark. Our plan calls for 120 additional spaces on the north and a new lot for 160 cars within the fence line along Bryant Irvin to serve the stadium and the south fields. The latter will also serve as an extra lot on event days when cars often park in the grass and along Dutch Branch Road.
Timeline and Fundraising
Our original goal was to start construction on these two projects in summer 2018, but thanks to a very generous gift from the Amon G. Carter Foundation, we are able to start construction on the North Field project in summer 2017! The Amon Carter Foundations’s gift will provide for 120 new parking spaces on the north side of campus in addition to a circle drive for bus parking. Thank you Amon Carter Foundation!!
Now, it is our turn to step forward to secure the remaining funds in order to further construction on these projects in summer 2018.
