The synthetic turf on the Stalnaker Field at Fairfax High School will be replaced and the D-Areas will be redone with synthetic turf. The project was completed in August 2014.
Ten years ago when the current turf was installed, Stalnaker Field was the first field in all of Northern Virginia to have synthetic turf. The life expectancy of the new turf on the field is 8 to 10 years and 10 to 20 years on the D-Areas.
Fairfax Policy Youth Club and City of Fairfax School Board are contributing $20,000 per agency annually for the next 8 years totaling $320,000 for the project. The remaining amount is funded through the City of Fairfax Capital Budget.
