Whitman, Einstein slated for new artificial turf fields amid health, cost concerns

Montgomery County is inching forward on a $4.9 million project bringing artificial turf fields to Einstein, Whitman and Julius West Middle after the council approved funding Tuesday.
Montgomery Soccer, Inc. would cover installation costs as part of a public-private partnership yielding the youth sports organization about 1,000 of the estimated 2,400 hours in annual access per field for 10 years. The agreement stems from a legal settlement after MSI sued MCPS for using an unlawful process that granted fields to clubs serving “only a limited fraction — the wealthiest — of the County’s youth.”
