Marion Community School officials are considering a major upgrade at their high school stadium that would help it serve as a hub for more sporting events and activities. An advisory team is exploring converting the Dick Lootens Stadium into a turf field.
Board member Aaron Vermillion says the conversion would allow the stadium to serve as the center for many sporting events including football, soccer, track and more.
Vermillion says turf would be resilient to wear and tear, which would drastically reduce potential damage.
If they go with turf, he says they hope to have the project done by next fall.
