A new stadium at Scott High School is one step closer to reality.
Thursday night, designs of what could be were shown to school staff and some members of the public.
Guaranteed in the $1.1 million design is a turf field, a first for Toledo Public Schools.
Though there are hopes to build a new track as well, the idea is raising some concerns.
"There are some issues with the size of the track and being able to fit it in the current location," Jim Gant, Chief Business Manager at TPS said.
Designers can either build 3/4 of the track, so the Bulldogs can practice, or, they can leave it out and make plans to finish it later.
If it is not included in the project, there would be more room in the budget for things like a new concession stand, press box and locker rooms.
"Some things we'll be able to do and some things we won't," TPS board member Dr. Cecelia Adams told 13abc. "We only have on chance to do it."
If the district decides to go with a regulation size track, it would mean purchasing more land around the existing field.
"There are a couple of houses that would be needed," Gant said.
There has been no official talk about imminent domain because this project is still in the early stages.
Adams says it's a conversation that needs to be had, so the district can answer all the questions.
"We need to fully research all aspects to make sure we can put the stadium in for the benefit of the student," she said.
District leaders are also redoing Woodward's stadium during the same time.
The price tag for that is also $1.1 million.
Should construction go over budget there are booster groups fundraising to help should there be any extra costs.
