PAPERMAKER ATHLETIC COMPLEX DEVELOPMENT FUND

A MESSAGE FROM THE PAPERMAKER ATHLETIC FUNDRAISING COMMITTEE

A HUGE thank you to the greater Nekoosa community for in supporting the referendum to upgrade the athletic facilities at Nekoosa High School!!! The scope of the referendum was designed to provide basic needed infrastructure.

The vision for a multi-use facility that offers students, athletes, fans and the community a safe, comfortable and modern venue for extended year-round sports and regional events is now a reality. The excitement will grow quickly as we see the construction beginning this late summer / early fall.

We have formed an Athletic Fundraising Committee to seek additional funds to make upgrades to the project not provided for within the referendum.  During the community discussions, as well as meetings with the internal stakeholders, there were a number of improvements requested.

The first was to secure enough funding to provide for a synthetic turf field versus natural turf. Coaching staff indicated that from their experience with other projects of this nature that natural turf will take upwards of three years to ensure that we have a playable surface. Even then playing time on the field will be limited to what the natural turf can sustain. The synthetic turf can be used seven days a week and be ready to play on the first year with much lower cost to maintain. The cost of this upgrade is approximately $500,000.

There are other areas as well that with additional funding will make for an overall project that our community can be very proud of. There is also the real possibility that with this additional fundraising that it will lessen the financial tax impact of the capital referendum.

Please consider donating in support of the Papermakers!
