The grass will be replaced with mulch. The plan is expected to cost $10,000 if approved by Poway's City Council.
This is considered the first phase. In the future, synthetic grass might replace the mulch.
The city hopes to conserve more than 2.8 million gallons of grass per year.
"Our goal is to try to look at the long term into how we can conserve and decrease consumption and be leaders in Poway, be a model, lead the way for folks," said Troy Bankston, Poway's Director of Public Works.
While most residents appear to support the idea, one woman is not sold on the mulch.
"I don't think it's a good idea, it's not safe for kids, a lot of kids put things in their mouths... a child could choke, I would say no to the mulch," said area resident Jessica Buck.
