2023 Traylor Stadium Bond Election

Oct 06, 2023 | Lamar CISD Communications

Guy K. Traylor Stadium originally opened in 1960 and has undergone many improvements throughout the last 60 years while hosting more than 70 events and thousands of students and visitors annually.

The current turf of the stadium was installed in 2013 with a life expectancy of 10 years. Currently, there are many improvements needed including turf, lights, foundation, and bleacher repairs to keep the stadium safe and operational.

For example, underneath the student section, a few steel support beams for the bleachers are bent, and multiple sections of the bleachers are supported by wooden beams rather than concrete beams. Recently, we closed the student section at Traylor Stadium due to these foundational concerns.

This August, the Lamar CISD Board of Trustees called for a $15 million bond election in November to assist with the improvements needed for the stadium. If approved, the bond will provide repairs needed.

The Board has worked to minimize the impact and voted to lower your tax rate by 9.28 cents. If this bond passes, it will not increase the total tax rate for the 2023 school year.
