A $4.9-million artificial turf sports field project slated for Fall River, N.S. needs another $213,000 to make it a reality.

The federal, provincial and municipal governments have collectively contributed $4.72 million toward the project, and efforts are now underway to press the community to come up with the remainder. The HRM Northern Suburban Area Community Turf Committee has a March 15 deadline to raise the remaining funds before work can begin.

The project was conceived five years ago. The field is to be constructed at Lockview High on the site of an existing football field. The new artificial playing surface will be able to accommodate other sports besides football. It will also include a surrounding six-lane track.

The local turf committee is appealing to residents in the Enfield to Beaver Bank, Sackville, and Fall River communities to come up with the remaining funds
