If you build it, they will run.
Just over a year ago, I took a trip to the tiny town of Maupin to hear about some big plans the community had for its very own Field of Dreams project: A world-class track and field facility at the high school featuring a breathtaking view of the Deschutes River.
Today, those drawings and renderings have become a reality.
Weather permitting the track will be ready for the high school district meet next spring.
There’s also a cool Central Oregon connection to this project.
Bend-based construction company Kirby Nagelhout is the company that won the bid to make the “track of dreams” a reality.
The project is still in need of donations to get it over the finish line – it needs about $600,000 for lights and a grandstand.
