Buda Sportsplex New LED LightsReservations Being Accepted for Sports Fields Starting June 8
BUDA, TX – June 4, 2020 – State-of-the-art LED light fixtures have been installed in the soccer and softball fields at Buda Sportsplex.
The city council expressed their interests in improving sports lighting in Buda Sportsplex at last year’s Sportsplex Workshop and it has finally come to fruition. The sum of both lighting projects cost almost $1 million, provided by the Buda Economic Development Corporation Board along with budgeted Hotel Occupancy Tax funds.
The chosen supplier was Musco Lighting, a nationally known leader in sports field lighting. Musco installed 10 70-foot grounded poles for the soccer fields and 16 poles for the softball fields, all featuring LED light. LED lighting specifically was desired due to its utilization of less electricity, reduced glare impact for the surrounding community, and low maintenance. Having LED lighting also places Buda in a good position towards receiving International Dark-Sky Association certification.
The installations come with a 25-year warranty and a remote access control system to the lights for scheduling purposes. A 24/7 call center is also available for scheduling support.
The improvements open a new field of options for the community. With the lights added, playing time may be extended into evening hours and field usage will increase for open play, year-round leagues, and tournaments. The cost is $15 per field, per hour for residents of Buda and $30 per field, per hour for non-residents. Light fees are $15 per hour, per field.
Field rentals will begin on Monday, June 8 for practices. Starting June 15 fields will be open for games and competitions.
