The Lake Stevens High School Stadium came down in a couple of hours on Monday, November 23. The work now begins in earnest to build a new stadium that will seat twice as many fans, include a locker room, referee room, press box, concession areas, ticket booths, additional parking and concrete plazas.
The replacement of the stadium is the final project as promised to voters in the February of 2005 Bond measure for 65.5 million dollars. The very first project was the replacement of the high school’s grass field and track in the summer of 2005.
The bond also provided for the building of Cavelero Mid High, the modernization of Mt. Pilchuck, Hillcrest and Sunnycrest Elementaries, and modernization of the high school commons and office area. Bond funding, by law, can only be used for buildings, specifically as outlined in the ballot measure. Funds cannot be used for the day-to-day operation of schools.
The completion of the new stadium is scheduled for September in time for the first football game.
