ST. CLOUD – The Tech Alumni Association is holding an event next month to unveil the designs and funding structure to renovate historic Clark Field. The St. Cloud Area School District closed the field to varsity football in the fall of 2012 because of mold issues.

Tech Alumni Association President Jim Dahl says they’ll hold an open house Monday, November 11th to unveil the designs and funding structure.

Dahl says the $3.2-million project is designed to preserve the unique architecture created when the Works Progress Administration built the field in 1942.

The changes include removing the west bleaches and adding new 1,200 seat bleachers with concessions, bathrooms and team rooms underneath.  The press box would also shift to the west end.  The field would shift to the southwest and become artificial turf.  New lights would also be added.

Dahl says they are proposing a 50-50 funding share with the school district.  A partnership with the St. Cloud Park and Recreation Department could also be included.

They hope to be able to get the project completed in time for the 2015 fall season.

The open house will be on the second floor of D.B. Searle’s in downtown St. Cloud from 6:30-9:00 p.m. on Monday, November 11th.
