Subject: Civic soccer field
Thanks for your interest in Civic.
The cost of redoing the surface for soccer is estimated to be around $900,000 and would include creating a new drainfield for water run off and drainage from under the grandstand. It would be paid for with funds from the escrow account.
Friends of Civic Stadium
We have a rather interesting problem at least in this bloggers eyes?
Civic stadium is a stadium built in 1938 in Eugene, Oregon it has served
as a place for both high school football as well as baseball for both high school and
Minor league baseball, In my research also has had a rodeo and a circus ?
In my email back to this person I stated my understanding of the love for this stadium.
How ever with all the other places?
I don't understand the need to spend money on this stadium?
I will include photos to back up my point or try?
the person has estimated a cost $900,000?
I see more at least in my research?
I continued back with??
In my opinion and maybe my own opinion it seems funny to me when we have a
soccer field right next door at South Eugene, with plenty of stands to view sports, plus ad
Pape field , ad all the rest of the high school sports fields with football venues that could be
at a moments notice turned into soccer , and don't we in Springfield , have at the
Willamalane park isn't there soccer fields?
last time I was there and visited?
Sir ,I know and I can understand why some like you love the old stadium but come now, civic has
served its purpose, built in 1938 it has seen its time.
you say an "estimated cost to be around" $900,000?"
don't you think it might cost more?
I looked up on google the estimated cost of field turf on a baseball field ?
And in my mind it might cost more?
I could be wrong,
You bet I was at civic stadium for all sorts of sports from high school football, baseball, and that
also included high school baseball, but now I think civic should be torn down , especially with all
the other places to play soccer?
as mentioned .
As one can see , many love and adore as I do many historic places as Civic stadium is. How ever
a baseball stadium?
I am sorry again but does money grow on trees???
The nation is always hearing about the unemployed?
then why not build something in place of the stadium to maybe put many back to work?
IN MY OPINION!
