Step #1: There are plans to re-do the main multi-use field, A.K.A. the baseball and softball field. Instead of spending all this money just to refurbish the grass (among other things), why don't you invest in some all-weather turf, like the football field? It saves tons of water (which, in a few years, will be hard to come by), it requires little maintenance, and it will allow the baseball team to finally have an outfield to brag about (as it stands, the Paly baseball outfield is one of the worst in the Bay Area).
Though this turf will initially be expensive, it is better for the environment, and the money will be made up quickly with reduced utility and maintenance rates.
