Officials in Kodiak, Alaska are debating whether or not to install a synthetic lawn turf on the sports fields of the town’s new high school. According to the Kodiak Daily Mirror, there’s no question that school district officials, parents and coaches want to use artificial turf on their fields; the question is whether they can afford to buy artificial turf after performing other renovation and expansion projects at Kodiak High.

Artificial turf manufacturers have long recommended using synthetic grass for sports fields in cold weather environments, and few places are colder than Kodiak, Alaska. School officials would like to build new football and baseball fields with synthetic grass in order to avoid excessive wear and tear caused by play in cold weather and let the fields be used year-round. The only obstacle standing in the way, according to the article, is finding enough funds after other, more essential, work is done with money reserved for the school’s renovations.
