Howland stadium renovation in works

Howland stadium renovation plans

Howland’s football home could look a lot different in a few years.

The Howland football renovation committee hosted a fundraising initiative Wednesday night at Leo’s Ristorante to unveil plans for a privately funded, three-phase project that would dramatically improve the overall facilities.

The total cost for the project is $1.85 million, and the group hopes to have it completed in three years.

Howland Athletic Director Ron McLeary emphasized that the costs would be funded through private donations:

“We won’t be using any of the taxpayers money.  I can’t help but get excited about it.  I think the people here believe in the project and I think the peope of Howland are going to come through for us to make this a reality.”

The first phase calls for new turf to be added the by the start of next season at a cost of $650,000.  The project would also include electrical updates, new home bleachers, improved parking, fencing, and gates.

The group already has over 4-hundred thousand dollars raised.
