ARPA-Funded Improvements at Smithland Athletic Complex – In December 2022, Harrisonburg City Council approved utilizing $1,310,000 in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds for improvements to the Smithland Athletic Complex that include the installation of field lighting and the addition of a restroom on the western side of the complex to improve convenience for patrons in that area. The addition of lighting will greatly enhance how many people will get to take part in Harrisonburg Parks & Recreation soccer and football leagues as additional programming will be available during evening hours – programming currently has to cease by dusk. Lighting for the complex has arrived in Harrisonburg, but will be installed over the coming months in hopes of being in use by Winter 2023-24. The new restroom facility will be available no later than the 2024 Spring Athletic Season.
