PORTLAND — Multnomah University trustees have approved phase one of building a full-size, artificial soccer field on the Portland campus. Because of donations, the first phase of preliminary work is fully funded at $110,000
Though the university has received financial commitments to cover construction costs, it will not begin any construction until the construction phase is fully funded, permits have been acquired, and trustees approve.
The university is not yet making public the overall project cost estimates since they are likely to change.
The proposed location is in the center of campus, behind the Joseph C. Aldrich Dining Hall and adjacent to the gymnasium, “It will be amazing to walk onto a small campus like ours and see this new turf field,” said Multnomah Athletic Director Lois Vos. “We are so grateful to the people who donated funds to this project. This would not have been possible without them.”
Phase one will include conducting surveys, inspecting the topography of the grounds, engineering consultations, design consultations, and acquiring construction permits from the city goverment.
