Athletic facility improvements involve a
number of decisions and the implications of
these changes will impact your community
for generations to come. At Shive-Hattery,
we understand that you are looking to best
leverage your available revenue dollars for
the sake of your students and community.
You may be asking…
Is our athletic facility meeting the needs of
our students? Is this the right time to plan
improvements to our current athletic facility?
Is our community interested in learning how
to navigate through this process of athletic
facility improvements?
