City seeks $400k for stadium


The city is seeking $400,000 from the state to address issues at Trinity Stadium, formerly known as Haverhill Stadium, including some of its most pressing problems such as the crumbling concrete stands and the need for new lights, said Mayor James J. Fiorentini. Acting on the advice of state Representative Brian Dempsey, a Haverhill Democrat, the mayor applied for the money from the Massachusetts Parkland Acquisitions and Renovations for Communities program. To date, the state has provided about $3 million for renovation work at the stadium, most notably to repair a portion of its grandstand, correct structural problems, and replace the grass field with artificial turf. However, at least $2 million more is needed to make the most pressing repairs, Fiorentini said.
