First phase expected to cost $3.5 million.
Plans for the Wildcat Park Project at Mayfield High School were approved on Monday by Mayfield Village officials.

Planning & Zoning Commission vote scheduled for Feb. 6.
Plans for the first phase of the Wildcat Park Project at Mayfield High School will come up for a Mayfield Village Planning & Zoning Commission vote on Feb. 6.

Construction expected to start in spring.
The Mayfield City School District can proceed with plans the first phase of the Wildcat Park project at Mayfield High School, as plans were approved Wednesday by the Mayfield Village Architectural Review Board. Ron DiNardo, ARB chairman, said district architects were able to supply three samples incorporating earth tones into the wall for the concession stand/restroom area. The district had submitted a gray color palette, which DiNardo said looked too drab, in an effort to tie in with the back of the high school building. "I think it'll be a better fit when they build it," DiNardo said. "I've used the same gray, but in industrial buildings in an office/warehouse setting. I think you'll get compliments when it's done." The district plans to…

Architectural Review Board has special meeting at 7:30 p.m.
The Mayfield Village Architectural Review Board will have a special meeting at 7:30 tonight to discuss the Wildcat Park project at Mayfield High School. Plans for the Wildcat Park stadium and athletic area renovations were reviewed by the ARB on Dec. 22, but approval could not be given because only two of five members were present.

Much of the discussion on Dec. 22 centered on the proposed 110-foot light poles and the gray color planned for the buildings containing the concession stand, restrooms and ticket booth. The light poles at the stadium are 80 to 85 feet high. Jeff Henderson of ThenDesign Architecture, who attended the …
