New Soccer Complex Petition


A general discussion was held on the intent of the County and City to focus on building a sports park and how MCYSA can support the process.


        MCYSA should not be in the maintenance mode of operation and this proposal would provide for a maintained complex.

        It would not be a MCYSA park, the County/City would oversee operation of the park and we would be part of the board and management organization.

        Sites are being evaluated. Nothing will be said about the location until the land is actually procured to protect land values.

        Steve Doolittle did mention that the county did complete $38K worth of paving in the complex and the $10K for turf work.

        There were some other short discussions about other places in the city/county area to play soccer. Those were issues were put on hold for another time.

        MCYSA did reiterate the need to continue to make improvements in the current complex. All were in agreement to continue improvements.

        MCYSA needs to continue with their petition effort to show support for the new complex.


The next board meeting will be Thursday January 5, 2006 at 6:30 pm
