NEW ZAEPFEL SCOREBOARD HAS RECEIVED PERMITTING FROM THE CITY OF YAKIMA
New Zaepfel Scoreboard Has Received Permitting from the City of Yakima!
With full funding from Gesa Credit Union, the Yakima community plus visitors to Zaepfel Stadium at 40th Ave and Tieton Drive will soon see a new scoreboard.
The City of Yakima and the Yakima School District have been productively engaged in cooperative work to advance the installation of the new display. The City of Yakima officially issued the permit to the Yakima School District today (2-7-20).
The next steps include sign production by Daktronics and sign installation. An installation schedule is not yet available but YSD is hopeful it can take place over the summer of 2020.
The existing scoreboard, although renovated by Pepsi throughout the years, has been in place since 1969. The new sign is larger in size, more modern in presentation, and includes video playback. The technology included with the new sign provides opportunities for classroom learning in video production for students at Davis and Eisenhower High Schools and Stanton Academy.
Gesa Credit Union is covering 100% of the cost of the sign and the sign installation.
