The sports field at Coppell ISD’s ninth-grade campus is getting a face-lift.

CISD’s board of trustees approved on Nov. 18 an agreement to split renovation costs of Lesley Field with the city. The cost to the city will be limited to $800,000.


The multiuse field has already received an artificial turf replacement, according to the agreement. Crews will also construct a concession stand and permanent restrooms as well as replace the bleachers and press box.

The agreement stipulates that the city can use the field for any events when it is not in use by the district. Typical city-sanctioned events include sports leagues such as football, soccer and lacrosse.

The Coppell High School Ninth Grade Campus formerly housed Coppell Middle School West before its relocation to Cypress Waters.
