The football field at City College of San Francisco may soon get a new playing surface, as its current turf is aging, officials at the school said.
On Wednesday, the school’s Board of Trustees is scheduled to approve spending no more than $750,000 on a new playing surface to be paid in $90,000 increments over eight years.
The current football field was installed in 1999 and is composed of a material known as “FieldTurf,” which has a 10-year lifespan and is fitted with rubberized pellets that are now known to contain hazardous materials, City College officials said.
The new surface being proposed – MondoTurf – does not contain hazardous materials and is completely recyclable, they said.
The cost projected for the turf and installation is $576,868.
