Richland School Board Approves Fran Rish Stadium Design

The Richland School District is closer to renovating the visitor-side bleachers at Fran Rish Stadium.

The school board approved the design and construction documents for the stadium project last night.

The district will begin seeking bids for the project, which is estimated to cost $2 million.

Construction is expected to begin after football season ends.

The new building will comply with accessibility regulations and include updated bathrooms and better accommodations for coaches and the media.

The renovation is one of several projects paid for by a voter approved $98 million dollar bond.
