Lee District Supervisor Jeff McKay's office confirms the proper funds have been acquired to move forward with the project.
Installing a new artificial turf field at Edison High School is currently going through the engineering phase, according to Linda Waller, director of communications for the Office of Supervisor Jeff McKay. Waller said $450,000 has been transferred from the Liberty View proffer to Fairfax County Public Schools to help fund the turf field, and the project is moving forward. As the project progresses, other proffers will contribute funds to complete the project. Benefits of a turf field include the ability to conduct sports events during inclement weather and decreasing the chances of injuries during matches. Patch will follow this story and update it as it progresses. Follow Kingstowne Patch on Twitter and like us on Facebook!

Senate Committee Kills ‘Tebow Bill’ on Thursday night, but some Patch readers think proposal should be voted into law.
Virginia's Senate Education and Health Committee shot down a bill Thursday that would have allowed home-schooled students to participate in public schools’ sports teams. Committee members killed House Bill 1442 — also known as the “Tebow bill" — on a 7-8 vote, shelving it for the remainder of this legislative session.
