Work Continues on New OCHS Turf

Part of project near Edgewood Elementary is related to drainage for the field, which officials say will be ready in time for the 2012 season.

Wondering what those big piles of dirt near are about? It's all part of the installation of an artificial playing surface at the football field.

Work began earlier this summer on the field, which school officials have said n. The turf, commonly referred to by the brand name FieldTurf, will look like real grass but is actually a synthetic surface.

The work next to Edgewood is related to drainage for the new field, Oak Creek-Franklin Superintendent Sara Burmeister said.

I cannot believe the school district is spending a $million dollors on this I would of thought we would have some people with brains on the school board ,I guess not the money would have better spent on paying down the loans or on classroom needs

I can't believe the school district thinks artificial turf is better to maintain then real grass. The school has roofing issues that need to be fixed. Soon an expansion and this is how they choose to use money. Stupid in my opinion...but I guess as an Oak Creek tax paying resident...what I think doesn't matter.
