Where we live: Amherst


A public forum on the safety of artificial turf will be featured when the Williamsville School Board meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the district office board room at Williamsville North High School, 105 Casey Road.

In May, district voters approved a $22.4 million athletic field project for the three Williamsville high schools. Part of the plan includes converting many of the existing fields to artificial turf. With the recent approval of the Williamsville North athletic field project by the State Education Department, the district must make a final decision in January on the turf product it plans to install for the fields in order to bid the job and begin construction in the spring.

This week:

• The Amherst School Board will review its capital project update and alternative funding when it meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the district office conference room. 55 Kings Highway.

• The Sweet Home School Board will hold its December voting meeting at 7:15 p.m. in the Vergils Community Center of Sweet Home High School, 1901 Sweet Home Road, Amherst. Preceding the Board meeting at 7 p.m., the District will offer its Preliminary Smart Schools Investment Plan for public hearing.
