- AstroTurf (company) will start mobilizing on Wednesday, August 9th (construction entrance, equipment, etc.)
- Work will begin Thursday, August 10th.
- Erosion sediment control barriers and site fencing will be installed next week, causing closure of the entire site to public use.
- Site prep will begin with the removal of 10-12 inches of dirt.
- This will prepare the field for Geotile, rock, and the new turf playing surface.
- The field will be adorned with our school name (INDIAN TRAIL) in one end zone, our mascot name (HAWKS) in the other end zone, and our HAWK logo in the middle of the field.

- With in three weeks, our gym floor was sanded down to bare wood, repainted, shaded, logos added, and resealed.

We also had discussions about improvements to our track during this same meeting:
- Our track will be completely rebuilt and resurfaced.
- CHA will submit a proposal to the city and bids will go out to contractors.
