BANGOR – During Monday night’s Bangor City Council meeting, the city councilors showed their initial support for funding for improvements to be made to Cameron Stadium.
The executive summary says the order would provide more than $2 million in general obligation bonds to fund improvements to the stadium.
These improvements include the installation of an artificial turf field and the replacement of the six-lane track to an a new eight-lane one.
The school department originally tried to get private donations for this but was not successful.
“This community needs a facility like this just because what we can do is we can have a chance to again host numerous events and also to make an investment. Just like what Coach Morris said, it’s time to give to our children, our greatest resource that we have,” said Alan Mosca, the track coach at Bangor High School.
These are not considered emergency or safety improvements, so they would require voter approval.
The councilors will vote again in two weeks to decide whether to put the issue before voters on the November ballot.
