HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- The Hastings-On-Hudson Board of Education is discussing plans for the renovation of the Reynolds Field athletic complex and other capital improvements on two campuses.

A report by the board detailed three outlines for the renovation or complete rebuilding of Reynolds Field, which is used for high school football, tennis and track and field. The facility is also a popular venue for residents who use the four-lane track, which has been closed due to deteriorating and dangerous conditions.

Also, health, safety and other capital improvements on the Hillside Elementary School ($793,000) and Hastings High School and Middle School building ($1.99 million) are estimated at at nearly $3 million.

The Reynolds Field work is expected to range from $830,000 to $3 million depending on the extent of the renovation.

Board President Eileen Baecher said the report on the Reynolds Field renovation is the beginning of a process that will consider a variety of options.

The Reynolds Field renovation plans range in scope and cost from re-sodding the field with grass, new bleachers and relaying a four-lane track ($831,000) to replacing the existing natural grass field with a state-of-the-art all-sport synthetic field complex, new tennis court, new six-lane track, field lighting and new bleachers at a cost between $2 and $3 million.

Archbishop Stepinac High School completed it's $1.9 million synthetic all-sports field renovation last fall. The City of New Rochelle built an all-purpose field with lights for just over $3 million as part of a $10 million renovation project at City Park in 2011,

The school board also proposed that the district consider a 15-year bond to borrow between $3 million and $5 million at current low interest rates of 3.25 percent.
