Second phase of development for SC Johnson Community Sports Complex announced

RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Racine County and the Racine Unified School District announced a partnership to further develop the SC Johnson Community Sports Complex at Pritchard Park, providing more athletic fields for county-wide sporting and recreational events and activities.

Following the opening of the SC Johnson Community Aquatic Center last June, this second phase of development and construction will include a state-of-the-art football/multi-use stadium, plaza and concessions. Additionally, the development may include 2-6 baseball/softball fields with concessions, enhanced parking and preservation and beautification of natural spaces.

The funding for this project is a partnership between RUSD and Racine County, with each entity contributing $3 million, subject to County Board and School Board approvals. RUSD will use funds that must be allocated for community-wide purposes and projects beyond the district schools. The fields will be accessible to all county public and private schools as well as other organizations.

Racine County completed a study and focus group on what residents want in their communities, and the results showed a need for major improvements to youth sports and recreational facilities
