Bronxville Board of Education President David Brashear is speaking out about the possibility of lights being erected at Chambers Field. Brashear says that he and the board are aware of the impact that lights could have on the community, and that is why the board is proceeding carefully.
"The Board of Ed is proceeding through this initiative with an open mind, and is being systematic in its approach," said Brashear. "The original goal was to have the feasibility and environmental impact study ready by our next Board of Ed meeting in September. No decisions will be contemplated until the study is completed, and once it is completed, ample time will be made available for public input."
During the summer, the Board of Education approved a study to look at the possibility of adding permanent lighting to the field. The study will be conducted by architects KG&D. Brashear says the environmental impact portion of the study will be key. That part will focus on how much of the field's light will spillover into the surrounding area.
