Bedford Public Schools is planning major upgrades to Bedford Community Stadium in two phases over the next 16 months.

The first phase is scheduled to begin this summer, according to a news release from the school district.

Currently, the district operates and maintains two stadiums: Bedford Community Stadium and Soccer/Lacrosse Stadium adjacent to Indian Creek.

With the two stadiums currently configured, there are cost and safety concerns that the district wanted to address. Soccer/lacrosse stadium challenges include the lack of functioning stadium lighting that limits playtime during available daylight hours, the bleachers that require frequent and ongoing repair/maintenance, and the lack of a nearby facility where students and Spectators can seek shelter from inclement weather during events.

A solution to many of these issues would be to move all events out of that facility and hold them all at Bedford Community Stadium instead. Students and spectators would enjoy the larger residential and visitor stands with a safer design, improved access/parking facilities, easy access to the school buildings for safer weather protection and more visibility within the school community. Relocating football and lacrosse events would eliminate the need for costly upgrades and ongoing maintenance at their current location.
