The Town had its kickoff meeting with Warner Larson and Quirk Construction regarding the 50-70 field at the Vining. This project was funded through the CPC at a previous Town Meeting. This project will take place in August and finish in November.
The Town sat down with Warner Larson, the Landscape Architects for the project, to go over the design for the Vining Field. The field closest to Lexington Road is being enlarged to be a 50 by 70 field, the grounds of both fields will be improved, ADA compliant bleachers installed, new Musco light poles, and ADA compliant paths connecting the facilities are all in the scope of work for this project. The Town has allocated roughly 1.2 million between CPA funds and Free Cash for this project. With the design finalized now the project can go out to bid so we can start construction this August to align with Billerica Little League.
This project is still in the design phase. Geotechnical borings have been completed and the geotechnical report was submitted to the design team. Warner Larson is waiting for the report and survey plans to start the design work for the Vining Field.
The Town is working with Leftfield, the project management team and Warner Larson, the Landscape Architects, for this project. The goal is to update the field to a 50/70 for Little League. We are hopeful to get a contractor on board in March 2023 to start the submittals, especially for items with long lead times like Musco light poles. Construction won’t start until August 2023 therefore Softball league can use the fields for this upcoming season with no interruption.
