Daily Herald report

Officials from the Arlington Heights Park District and Northwest Suburban High School District 214 will gather at Hersey High School's Roland R. Goins Football Stadium next week to dedicate the school's new synthetic turf field.

The park district and school board teamed up this year to share approximately $1 million cost of installing the new artificial surface at football field. Officials said the 12-year cost of the field, including its installation, is about $265,000 more than maintaining a grass field over the same time period, but will allow far more activities on the surface. District 214 made a similar deal with the Wheeling Park District for a synthetic surface at Wheeling High School.
