Expanded bleachers coming to Buc Field

KINGSTON — There won't be as many people forced to stand or find their own seating at Buc Field in the near future.

The North Kitsap School Board unanimously approved Jan. 23 a project to expand bleacher seating on the west side of the field.

The seating will be expanded by 10 rows. It will add approximately 275 seats.

The project is expected to cost an estimated $63,881. The district will hire SiteLines Park Equipment.

The money for the project is being paid for by the district and the Kingston Athletic Booster Club. The district will pay $18,881. The Athletic Booster Club and Associated Student Body will pay $45,000.

The expanded seating follows discussion building a press box at Buc Field. Because of the cost, the board eventually voted against the press box project. Because the seating falls within the school board’s verbal promise to the Boosters to add to Buc Field, it was OK’d.
