KU to share proposed improvements to recreation field in Central District

Tue, 09/12/2017

LAWRENCE — The University of Kansas is in the final year of construction of the Central District development project. One element of the project is the recreation field located adjacent to 19th Street between the new Cora Downs Residence Hall and the new Stouffer Place Apartments. The initial design only involved construction of the field with associated netting and fencing. However, there is current interest in adding a restroom/storage facility, scoreboard and field lighting.

In accordance with the City of Lawrence/University of Kansas Cooperation Agreement, the university is informing owners of property adjacent to the Central District and other interested parties about these proposed improvements. A public meeting regarding the improvements will take place at 6 p.m. Sept. 20 at the St. Andrews Office Facility, 1515 St. Andrews Drive, Room 25. The purpose of the public meeting is to provide information about the proposed improvements and receive comments.

If you are interested in viewing the proposed plan in advance of the meeting, please contact Facilities Planning and Development at (785) 864-3431.
