Earlier today, the Friends of Daly Field submitted an Expanded Environmental Notification Form (EENF) for the Daly Field Restoration Project to the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs. This document describes the potential environmental effects of the renovation project as well as the benefits to the citizens of the Allston/Brighton and surrounding communities and the Commonwealth as a whole.
In an our ongoing effort to provide transparency about the Daly Field Renovation Project and to allow members of the community to review the EENF, we have posted the document in it’s entirety.
Last night, Allston-Brighton residents, Brighton High School students and other interested parties attended a community meeting to learn more about Daly Field Renovation Project.
More than 50 people attended the meeting held at Brighton High School. Attendees were given a presentation detailing the improvements proposed to the current fields including:
- New synthetic turf on the two existing fields for football (providing Brighton High School a home field), soccer, lacrosse, field hockey and softball
- More field access for local youth sports leagues such as Little League
- Improved walking, jogging and bicycle paths
- New lighting
- Replacement of the existing field house, including public restrooms
