The City of Summit is announcing the completion of its artificial turf replacement project at Investors Bank Field; the track and playing field will reopen to the general public on Friday, August 26, 2016.
The renovated field includes new goal posts, soccer nets and safety fencing as well as the latest advances in artificial turf technology installed by Desso Sports Systems. The project was managed by the City of Summit Department of Community Programs and designed by Tom Miller of Premier Product Development, a prominent NJ sports field design firm that also designed the very successful project at the Tatlock Tennis Courts completed in June.
The City continues work at Investors Bank Field complex and will soon make asphalt repairs to paved surfaces, replace bleacher seating and install a new sound system.
The artificial turf replacement project was funded through the City of Summit Capital Improvement Plan with grant assistance from Union County Kids Recreation Trust Fund and Field Restoration Fund. The total cost of the project is $635,000.
