Plans for a landscaping project at Pilot Butte School were shared by organizers with town council on Feb. 8.
Spearheaded by local resident Twyla Armstrong and school principal Tammy Sillers, the $1.2 million project involves moving a ball diamond, and creating space for a CFL-sized flag football field plus a running track. In a different part of the green space, a new play structure is also slated to be added.
By decommissioning cisterns at the school more parking can be added, Armstrong said.
Space is also being left for modular classrooms and more greenery is planned as well. In a junior area of the green space, the current play structure will be replaced with an accessible one, framed with a sidewalk, and the existing sand replaced with pea gravel. A mini artificial-turf soccer area will also be added, with some other greenery to be planted as well.
