DERBY >> School officials got the green light to submit a proposal to the state seeking $4.8 million to give the Ryan Field Athletic Complex a major facelift.

The Board of Aldermen at its May 28 meeting unanimously voted in favor of enabling Superintendent of Schools Matthew Conway to seek full funding for the project. The city is not being asked to foot any of the costs.

“We have submitted the proposal through our local state legislatures as part of a House Bond Request Application,” Conway said Friday. “The estimate for the project is $4,788,792.”

School officials in March commissioned a feasibility study, which was done by Blades & Goven Landscape Architects, based in Fairfield. The $7,500 study was necessary to determine if the Ryan Field Athletic Complex and Marcucio Little League Complex could be outfitted with artificial turf.
