The option Cooper says has the most internal support out of three that were presented includes 17 synthetic turf fields…with 75 parking spaces for each of the fields.082614-Greg-Owens-and-Wayne-Cooper-discuss-parking.mp3
Ten fields would be for baseball and softball, three for soccer, and four for either football or soccer.
Known as “Option A”, it also includes nearly 20 covered pavilion areas along with picnic pads, a trail system, sand volleyball, and tennis and badminton courts.
Option “A” also has a skate park, disc golf, a playground, a trail system, and an amphitheater.
Deputy City Manager Hugh Walker says no location has been determined, the $10 million dollar cost for fields and infrastructure is an early estimate, and the proportion of public access versus tournament play has not been decided.082614-Hugh-Walker-answers-who-would-use-superpark.mp3
