A study committee's representatives will recommend an artificial surface for Blocksidge Field when they report their findings to selectmen on Wednesday.
The Athletic Field Study Committee report recommends a publicly funded multi-sport surface at Phillips Park as part of a three-phase project, said Town Administrator Tom Younger.
The project's second phase calls for privately funded light towers, and the third phase, grandstands on the home side, also privately funded.
More details will be available on Wednesday.
The committee also recommends the town seek state funds to help offset the project's cost.
Last summer selectmen asked the committee to study field needs and how to meet them.
The committee studied other improvements, as well, including stands, and private and grant funding possibilities.
Last Town Meeting an artificial surface proposal — that called for public/private funding — failed to gain the necessary two-thirds majority.
On Wednesday, selectmen meet at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
