Submitted for your review is our proposal regarding the usage of the old bus garage. This garage would be a perfect location to convert into a multi-sports facility that could be used by all in Decatur Middle School and Decatur Central High School.
With sport seasons overlapping and sport teams’ seasons coinciding, space to practice is limited. The pavilion is crowded with the middle school basketball teams using that facility because their space is limited too. The real reason for the Armstrong Pavilion is meant for the use by the community. But, after school high school athletes fill this area which defeats the purpose of it being a place for the community to use to exercise. If the old bus garage was converted into an area that all sports team could use, that would alleviate that problem and congestion.
Also there are complaints with the softball and baseball teams in the pavilion during the early spring season, since the weather is not good enough for the teams to get outside. Balls go astray and hit patrons of the pavilion and could potentially seriously hurt one since it is overcrowded. If there was a facility that these teams could go, to it would eliminate the potential for an injury or lawsuit.
Also during the early spring not only are the baseball and softball teams in there the track team has indoor practices in there too. This makes for a packed facility which increases the risk of injury to the high school athletes and Decatur Township community members who use the facility.
We appreciate your time and consideration of our proposal. We feel that this remodeling would enhance and help excel our sports and other extracurricular activities. We hope you really consider and look at our proposal in detail. We look forward to your response, and we will be in contact with you in the next two weeks for finalized arrangements. Again, thank you for your time and consideration.
We, the undersigned, call on the Decatur Township School Board to allow the old DCHS bus garage to be used as a multi-sports facility for Decatur Middle School and Decatur Central High School Students.
