With the news that District 742 would maintain Clark Field last week, the Friends of Clark Field group is now exploring options to restore the field for varsity sports. The original proposal to build a $26 million early childhood education, community education, media services and district administration facility on the site has been reconsidered by the district.
The St. Cloud area school district is halting demolition of Clark Field while they mull all other options for a future site to place early childhood education programs. The district originally had a plan to put in a $25 million building on the field for early childhood education, community education, adult basic education, the district welcome center, media services and the administrative offices.
