North Quincy High School Campus Improvement Project Plan Presentation:
Jimmy Hui, President/Chief Executive Officer at The Jimmy Hui Foundation office is very excited and pleased to hear from Mayor Thomas P. Koch shared with his presentation about the North Quincy High School Campus Improvement Project Plan during the Community Meeting on Wednesday, November 27, 2013 in the Peter Chrisom Auditorium at North Quincy High School here in the City of Quincy.
The 2-acres field will be outfitted for football, soccer and lacrosse and rebuilt using state-of-the-art Field Turf, which will allow for expanded usage by both youth sports leagues and high school teams.
The plan creates a Notth Quincy bookend to major improvements in the more southern end of the City of Quincy that included the Field Turf renovation at Veteran's Memorial Stadium and the new Faxon Field track and field facility.
Among the components of the new field:
* 600-seat grandstand
* Lightning, sound system and scoreboard
* Concession stand and Rest Rooms
* Fencing around field.
The field reconstruction will be coupled with a new construction directly to the North Quincy High School campus that includes 157 parking spaces and bus pick/drop-off areas aimed at easing longstanding parking and traffic problems in the North Quincy High School area.
The neighborhood drainage system will be overhauled and detention areas created, to help alleivate long-standing flooding problems in the area. The project is coupled with a number of drainage improvements underway as part of Mayor Koch's Capital Improvement plan.
The plan requires the purchase of 8 properties, 7 on Hunt Street and one on Newbury Avenue. Property Owners have been contacted directly prior to the public announcement and purchase discussions are in the beginning stages.
Renovations to O'Neil Field at Atlantic Middle School will be part of plan to acommodate for the play field lost at Teel Field during the construction.
