Improvements To City Stadium Will Be A Touchdown

Officials with Lynchburg’s Department of Parks and Recreation on Wednesday laid out their plans for City Stadium. The stadium has had few upgrades since it was built in the 1930s, The $7 million plan includes a new entrance, new bathrooms, concessions, locker rooms, lighting, P-A system, and an artificial turf field. Lynchburg City Council will hear the specifics on the proposal during a work session in February. The stadium is home turf for both E.C. Glass and Heritage High Schools. Officials say the Hilltopper and Pioneer football teams could kick off a new season if improvements begin soon. Funding for the project is included in an already approved Capital Improvement plan.
