Neosho School District breaks ground on End Zone Facility

Neosho, MO - Neosho School District will break ground on an end zone facility to be located north of Neosho High School on Friday, February 26, 2021 at 10:30 a.m.

 

The End Zone Facility is one of the projects made possible by The Next Step Ballot Measure that was passed on June 7, 2020. This project is the fourth project in the scope of the measure, preceded by the installment of metal storm shelters located at Central Elementary and Field Early Childhood, and a brick and mortar storm shelter currently under construction at Neosho Middle School.

 

The End Zone Facility will be approximately 43,000 sq.ft. and will house locker rooms, concessions, restrooms, and an indoor practice space for extracurricular activities. The indoor facility will also include a weight room, film room and storage area. Construction is set to begin immediately. The south side of the facility, containing restrooms, locker rooms, and concessions, will be completed in September 2021. Completion of the north side of the facility, containing the indoor practice space, is expected in October 2021.

 

The cost of the project will be $5.4 million. A nationwide company with a local interest, whose name will be announced during the ceremony, has pledged a monetary contribution of $400,000 to go toward the project.

 

The groundbreaking ceremony will take place at the future site of the End Zone Facility, located north of Bob Anderson Stadium. The event will be outside but we ask that all attendees wear a face covering and practice social distancing. 

 

Bob Anderson Stadium is located at 511 S Neosho Blvd, Neosho, MO 64850. Attendees should turn into the main drive and take a left in front of the visitor stands.
