$10M renovation, construction project will be proposed for Proctor athletic complex

PROCTOR, MN -

A $10 million renovation and construction project for the Proctor athletic complex will be proposed via school board referendum in February, school officials confirmed to KBJR 6.

The project will center on building a new hockey rink behind Terry Egerdahl Field, which officials hope would be open in time for the 2018-19 season. The rink may contain two ice sheets, locker rooms, and weight room facilities.

The rink would be built off Kirkus Street, which is behind the existing stadium used by Proctor football, soccer, and baseball.

Also, the plan calls for replacing grass fields at Terry Egerdahl Field with artificial turf. That would allow the complex to be used by softball and lacrosse teams as well as football, soccer, and baseball.

It is hoped that part of the project, which would include new locker room space, would be done in time for the 2017-18 athletic year.

The aim is have a referendum vote in February, according to officials.
