As many of you know, the FM Board of Education recently passed a resolution to put a referendum (for a new turf field/stadium facility plus library repair work) before the public on 5 March.
Good news: the resolution included the statement that the referendum for synthetic turf EXCLUDES CRUMB RUBBER PRODUCTS. I firmly believe that excluding crumb rubber products was a wise choice and applaud the Board for their support of non-crumb rubber playing fields.
In my opinion, the Board has been very thorough in its examination of alternative synthetic turf surfaces. I fully support the installation of a new, non-crumb rubber synthetic turf field at the FM High School. Additionally, I believe that it would be prudent for the community to approve the referendum for the new facility because a) the condition of the current playing field must be addressed, b) the number of 2-hour events which can be scheduled on a synthetic field will be 13 times greater than is currently possible, c) the Board have committed to non-crumb rubber synthetic turf, and d) we currently have an opportunity for the State of NY to pay for 80% of the project.
Please consider this carefully and realize that a synthetic turf field is not just a "luxury item". A synthetic turf field is a surface which promotes the physical activity of the entire student body in the F-M high school as well as many, many children in the district in both the middle schools and elementary schools. Please vote YES.
