This week ... Baseball, softball, tennis, parking
by Dolores Hamilton
Voters in the Iowa Park CISD school district will decide on May 12 whether to approve a $14.7-million bond proposal for major renovations.
The last two weeks the Leader has featured a summary of work proposed for the high school campus and part of the athletic complex. This week the focus will be on the remainder of proposals for the athletic complex including baseball fields, softball fields, tennis courts and additional visitor parking.
The goal, with area permitting, is to add four tennis courts. They would be used by high school and middle school students, and would enable the school to hold district tennis tournaments.Tennis court lighting and storm water control are also included.
New bleachers, press box, sound system, scoreboard, dugouts, black top, fence, pitching cages, covered batting cage and storage.

A new building for concessions and restrooms would be located in a central area to serve both baseball and softball fields.
Visitor parking on the south side of the stadium is included. The parking area would also serve the softball and baseball fields.
Anyone with questions about the bond proposals can call the Leader at 592-4431 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or supt.@ipcisd.net. The questions will be answered by Superintendent Jerry Baird or a member of the school board and published in the next issue of the Leader.
