What is T.U.R.F., Inc. all about? Tri-Town Unified Recreational Facilities (T.U.R.F., Inc.) is a citizen-based non-profit organization, formed to fulfill the vision of a first-class facility at Old Rochester Regional High School.
The fields and facilities at Old Rochester Regional High School are the common ground of the Tri-Town area. Every day brings a diverse group of students and community members together to run the track, hop on the tennis courts, or join their teams on the playing fields. Each year thousands of friends, neighbors and teammates cross paths and strengthen connections. The fields at the high school have not been upgraded since the school’s 2000 addition, and the facility is showing its age.
T.U.R.F., Inc. would like to transform ORRHS fields into a premiere facility for the tri-towns to use. This would include:
- The installation of synthetic turf playing fields;
- The redevelopment of track & tennis facilities;
- The rebuilding of grass baseball fields.
This complex will bring our athletic programs to the next level, creating more opportunities for our youth and recreational programs, and expand opportunities for adult athletic and civic programs.
Studies have shown that areas with modern recreational areas see a property value increase of 17% or more, and areas with poorly maintained rec areas see their property values decrease.
The Committee is looking for your help, no matter how big or small. They usually meet on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm in the ORR High School Media Center, but you can also check out their Facebook page and website page “Come To Our Next Meeting.”
