Lack of field space is just one issue the Palo Alto Unified School District board will consider before voting on the Paly fields' project proposal. The board meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. tonight in the Administration Building, 25 Churchill Ave.
The proposal includes replacing the baseball and softball fields, converting the El Camino field into a synthetic-turf field and putting in new bleachers for the stadium fields. The project would cost an estimated $3.5 million.
The board will also elect new officers at the meeting. With current board President Dana Tom's term ending, the board will elect its president for 2009. The board will then elect a vice president. Superintendent Kevin Skelly will fulfill the executive secretary position according to board policy.
In addition, the board will take action on the first interim financial report.
