The Vernonia School District has restarted construction on the Spencer Park replacement park sports fields at the site of the old school buildings which were deconstructed last year.
According to school superintendent Aaron Miller construction is currently on schedule to be completed and the fields seeded this fall and will be ready for use next summer.
The park plan calls for the construction of a baseball/softball field and two soccer fields. The sports fields being built will replace the fields the City of Vernonia lost when they traded properties with the School District as part of the new school campus construction project. The School District is responsible for the construction of the replacement park which will then be turned over to the City of Vernonia for public use.
The project was halted last fall when project quality issues delayed construction until it became too wet to continue site work.
