City considering putting artificial grass at UniTrade Stadium
The city’s baseball stadium could be seeing some changes that could help the field be used for other events.
UniTrade Stadium currently features natural grass, but that could change in the near future if artificial grass is approved to be its replacement.
The Public Services Department says they are requesting proposals on how much it would cost.
Ramon Chavez with public services says that making the change could conserve water and maintenance costs in the long run.
Chavez says, "It's something that we are analyzing. There's maintenance that would be reduced and at the same time we'll have the capability of bringing in other venues to the facility.”
The director goes on to say that if they make the switch the field could be used for soccer, football and maybe even concerts.
