LYNNFIELD PASSES ON POTENTIAL $400,000 PARC GRANT FOR TURF FIELDS, NORTH READING POSITIONED FOR THE FUTURE
Below are two town warrants passed by North Reading in 2009. Both articles outline the “Transfer Jurisdiction of the High School Football Field and Track Area”. Highlighted are the areas referencing the PARC Act and other state grant programs. Due to other funding sources, North Reading did not apply for the PARC Grant, but did find value in naming the Commonwealth of Massachusetts PARC Act as well any other grant programs connected with the scope of the article. (To date, the State of Massachusetts is awarding up to $400,000 under this program.) Based on our discussions with the Hillview Commission, these grants may be applied for in the future for resurfacing of fields or other maintenance issues. At this time, Lynnfield has not positioned our new turf fields to qualify for Massachusetts PARC ACT funding.
