ASHWAUBENON (WLUK) -- The Green Bay Packers have moved to plan B to protect the privacy of practices on Clarke Hinkle Field from possible onlookers in the new Resch Expo.
According to Ashwaubenon Village documents, the team is proposing to erect an opaque screening system that will be raised only when the team is holding closed practices on the field.
The screening would be raised and lowered along 33-foot-high poles spaced about 30 feet apart. The existing 8-foot-high chain link fence would remain in place, according to the village documents.
A similar system is used by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
In May, the team withdrew a request for a 22-foot tall fence after a village committee rejected the plan, noting concerns about how it would look and that it could block the view from the new expo center.
The team typically only uses Clarke Hinkle Field during the regular season, when practices are not open to the public.
The new plan will be discussed at a village committee meeting on July 7th.
