Below is a brief update on the design phase of the Lake Tye Park lighted synthetic turf project. Thank you for your continued support and valuable input. This project will have a tremendous impact on our community by creating more capacity and new opportunities for outdoor recreation.
The City of Monroe is designing new synthetic turf lighted fields at Lake Tye Park and invited the public, including sports user groups to visit the Parks & Recreation booth at the National Night Out Against Crime event on Tuesday, August 7 and view schematic design layout alternatives up close, share ideas with our design team and vote on their preferred layout. The event drew many people and a preferred field layout was overwhelmingly chosen, with added feedback from user groups to include a north/south field orientation for two universal lacrosse fields, two full-size soccer fields with markings for smaller mod fields, and a softball/baseball field oriented at the northeast corner, along with youth baseball markings at the southwest corner. The public input was valuable for this stage of the design, leading to the conceptual layout shown below, with only slight refinements to the athletic field markings that will be incorporated in the final design plan set. Next steps for the design phase will be development of the grading, drainage and electrical plans. This project is anticipated to be constructed during 2020.
