GLENDALE — Hoover High School wants a new synthetic grass athletic field, similar to the ones at Glendale and Crescenta Valley.
Glendale needs upgrades to its baseball and softball fields.
Crescenta Valley desires new lights and bleachers for the school's football/soccer field, in addition to a refurbished swimming pool that would meet CIF standards for playoff matches.
All three schools have a "wish list" of projects they hope to begin after the passage of Measure S, a $270-million bond measure that was passed on the April 5 ballot by Glendale voters. The bond garnered 69% of the yes vote, well above the 55% needed to pass.
Weeks after the passage, Hoover, Glendale, and CV are eager to begin work on projects to improve not only their athletics but also other projects. Potential bond-funded projects include major renovations and technology updates in the classroom. The money is also likely to be used to repair walls, roofs and floor cover coverings, in addition to updating science, career and technical labs.
