Surprise: Julius West Middle School To Get New Artificial Turf Field #nobid

Yesterday, Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) announced that the lawsuit brought against the system by Montgomery Soccer Inc. (MSI) has been settled. The litigation involved the construction of and access to artificial turf fields in Montgomery County.
As part of the agreement, MSI will contribute up to $5.2 million to construct new artificial turf fields at Julius West Middle School (JWMS), Walt Whitman High School, and Albert Einstein High School in exchange for access to the fields. The agreement also clears the way for construction of a new turf field at Winston Churchill High School, as well as a use agreement for the Richard Montgomery High School (RMHS) stadium field. Part of the deal allows RMHS to continue its field use arrangement with Bethesda Soccer.

The construction of the fields will be contingent on approvals from the county and the City of Rockville....
