It’s all about updating the fields for soccer and lacrosse. We already have three (3) 60×90 fields.
Take a look at the RBSA website. There are only eight (8) Rec (Bonvarlet Senior and Junior) teams in town. Most of the Senior games this year were forfeited due to not having enough players.
As the demographic changes, the trending for the last 8+ years shows that baseball and softball particpation is way down. This past year there were only 5 travel teams that needed 60×90 fields. They usually play 2x week with one maybe two home games per week.
Those three fields are more than adequate for covering home field assignments.
So we’re left with conclusion. The Rec Comm wants to upgrade their facilities and showcase soccer and lacrosse.
The idea that they lost a field when BF was converted to a track facility is rubbish. They were desperate to get turf at the HS and play on Ridgewood Avenue and in front of the HS building. You can’t have your cake and eat it too…
