When Janet Bolster emerged from a meeting April 10 of Towson community leaders and County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, she was under the impression that Towson High School would be getting an artificial turf field soon, likely as early as this fall, in time for the 2014-2015 school year.
Artificial turf will indeed be installed at Towson High, at 69 Cedar Ave., at its main stadium field. But the earliest the field will be ready is spring of 2016, a schedule that is causing consternation among leaders like Bolster, then-president and now immediate past president of the Towson Recreation Council, and Bruce Chesser, president of Towson Sports Boosters, who also attended the meeting.
“It’s disappointing,” said Bolster, whose nonprofit organization provides recreational opportunities for the Towson community, primarily youth, and who, without the Towson High field, is now scrambling to find athletic venues for its youth sports programs next spring.
