FREEPORT — Voters in Freeport, Durham and Pownal rejected a proposal today to borrow $3 million to build a stadium complex at Freeport High School, which serves students of Regional School Unit 5.

The overall vote was 1,350 to 884 against the stadium proposal, according to tallies from town clerks in each community. The vote in each town was: Freeport, 708 to 646; Durham, 431 to 102; and Pownal, 273 to 74.

The stadium would have featured an eight-lane track surrounding a synthetic-turf field with lights, bleachers, a press booth and concessions.

District voters also approved a $23.9 million school budget for 2011-12 and the creation of a fuel cost stabilization fund.
