@Charlie Homer. in an effort to give you information, Leigh Jackson with Recreation is here to answer questions. We are able to use synthetic 3x more than natural turf. On our few synthetic fields do allow for year round recreation and resting fields.

Concord is following two 3-year moratoria with a 5-year moratorium. But WA24 is still 3 years.
Mary Sabolsi
01:08:10
As an ID doc, I can attest to the MRSA issues. The turf companies now recommend treating the turf with biocides, but that has trade offs as well.

To Len's point regarding a sand-based field with a sophisticated drainage system, I can confirm that is what is currently being built at Cypress Field. (Alexandra Vecchio, Director of Parks and Open Space-DPW)
Nancy OConnor
01:15:36
The director of Parks is here as is the Director of recreation. Would you hear from them or have you already?
Mary Sabolsi
01:17:56
I think that the new field at Cypress would be a good model for the Driscoll field.
Alexandra Vecchio
01:23:54
One other note- we can turn a synthetic turf field into grass and we can turn a grass field into synthetic turf. Both come with a price, but did want to clarify that point. (Director of Parks & Open Space)
Nancy OConnor
01:23:59
all fields are used in town. And we are always looking at alternatives
Mary Sabolsi
01:25:20
Can't be done in 3 months.
Alexandra Vecchio
01:25:47
Sorry - one other thing. We do manage our field with organic products currently.
Mary Sabolsi
01:29:50
Sorry, have to run to AC, but thank you so much to all of you for everything you do for our Town. We are lucky to have you.
Wendy Machmuller

interdepartmental collaboration... much like we did with the plastic water bottle study committee in 2016
Clint Richmond
02:05:16
As I shared with Sigalle, we did have a conversation with Dr. Jett about education two years ago. This have been discussed for some time with Planning and Econ. Dev., which is why we eliminated salons.
Clint Richmond

Thank you for the discussion.
