A deed for the transfer of the old football field complex at Calhoun County High School to the Calhoun Commission is being submitted to the Calhoun County Board of Education on Monday.

The school board is expected to review the terms of the deed.

Wayne Underwood Field is expected to be maintained as a public recreational facility for the use of county residents.

The Calhoun Parks and Recreation Board will be responsible for its development and maintenance, said Commission President Larry McCallister.

The school board decided a month ago to give the facility to the county, with terms that require it be returned if recreational use is discontinued.

McCallister said the Commission will look toward making some improvements at the facility, including an access ramp and boat dock along the Little Kanawha River, in addition to a walking trail around the facility.

Commissioner Weaver is writing one or more grants for special funds to further develop the complex.

"The school board's decision to maintain the field for public use should really be appreciated by county residents," said McCallister.
