The planned Guv Fuller Field renovation project scheduled for construction in 2020 got sidetracked due to the Covid-19 pandemic; however, it is on track for construction in September of 2021. The original approvals of the funds from the Community Preservation Committee (CPC) (approved in December 2019) and the Falmouth Town Meeting (delayed until September 2020) were for an amount thought to be more than sufficient to cover the entire project. However, construction and material costs dramatically increased during the pandemic resulting in insufficient funding following the bidding process. Tremendous flexibility shown by the CPC and the Town were exhibited as an urgent funding request was approved by the CPC for an additional $314,045 bringing the total funding of the project to $1,055,336. Final approval is anticipated at the Falmouth Town Meeting scheduled for June. The major renovation will include new safety fencing, dugouts and visitor bleachers. All new walkways and dugouts will meet the guidelines for the American Disability Act, a feature that did not previously exist.
