Many communities are facing a tough decision - do they install artificial turf on municipal and school fields?
Concerns include increased temperatures and health issues related to chemicals contained in the infill.
For more information about artificial turf and safer alternatives, see TURI’s Artificial Turf webpage.
TURI has also compiled a variety of resources to help provide towns with up-to-date information on the technical and political issues, as well as about what other communities are choosing to do. We hope you find this resource helpful and welcome any additional information or questions you may have.
Please feel free to email TURI Community Program Manager Joy Onasch or call her at 978-934-4343.
