The project’s design group, Callander Associates, is hoping to send the project out to bid in the next couple of months and bring a contract back for Town Council approval in early May, Callander representative Matt Gruber told the council Wednesday night.
The goal is for the contractor to begin work the day after school ends and have everything finished before students return after summer break.
The current field will be completely torn up and regraded to improve irrigation, Gruber said. The new field will include a baseball diamond, softball diamond, and room for a soccer field.
Callandar is still trying to decide what type of grass will be used for the field, Gruber said, adding that the Moraga School District will have the most influence on that decision because they will be responsible for ongoing field maintenance.
Council members also asked that the various sports groups that have been consulted throughout the design process also be given a chance to provide input on the grass.
The project will cost about $600,000 and is being funded by Measure WW funds.
