Brookfield plan for stadium fix: Donations, volunteers

Meetings to be held regarding Brookfield's stadiums future

BROOKFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – The Brookfield School Board announced Tuesday it is looking for donations and volunteer work to help renovate its football stadium in time for the 2015 season, according to a press release.

The board is hosting an organizational meeting at the school Wednesday at 5 p.m. to discuss what is needed.

The release stated that phase one of the plan involves volunteers taking down the home side of the bleachers and moving them to the visitor’s side of the field. After the renovation is complete, seating will be available only on the west side of the field. Workers will then put in 15 handicapped parking spots.

Superintendent Tim Saxton said that those initial changes need to be done by August 15 for the team to play home games at the stadium. Saxton also said in the release that volunteers and donations of money and materials are needed.

The Cafaro Foundation has donated $50,000 to help the school district with renovations.

Phases two and three will be addressed in 2016 and will include purchasing new bleachers for the east side of the stadium, if enough money is raised, according to the release.
