Manufactured Crisis Of The Week

The North Rd Park project consists of five soccer fields and a cricket field.  When ready, the fields will open as planned but the weather will be a factor in the process timeline.  Nothing has changed in regards to the fields.  What has been recently questioned is what appropriate structures will be located at the park.  The park was promoted as a “soccer complex” with the ability to host tournaments.  With a max of five soccer fields available, (three when the cricket field is in use), tournament options are in reality very limited.  Before roughly $1,600,000 that is being asked for is committed for items such as a maintenance building and concessions stand, the proper research will be done.  Soccer fields are very much needed and I look forward to the fields opening when ready.  The proper due diligence will be done, however, for the remaining proposed features at the park.  This, of course, includes the purpose of the park and what availability the fields will provide.
