Public meeting scheduled for Hazel Dell sports fields project

Vancouver, WA – Clark County Public Works and Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation are partnering with the Northeast Hazel Dell Neighborhood Association to host a public meeting on April 21, 2009, to discuss prospects for a new sports field project in Hazel Dell. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the Clark County Public Works Operations and Maintenance conference center, 4700 NE 78th St., Building B1.

The proposed sports fields would be located on the north side of Northeast 78th Street, about a quarter mile west of St. Johns Road. To meet needs of local youth and adult sports groups, the project scope could include five baseball fields (1 full-size, 2 intermediate and 2 t-ball), batting cages, restroom facilities, a parking lot, access roads and walkways, and improvements to adjacent roads.

Design of the sports fields is funded by the real estate excise tax, which is paid whenever property is sold. The Greater Clark Parks District, a special district approved by voters in the unincorporated urban area of Clark County in 2005, will pay for maintenance after construction.

Long-term plans for the property also include space for a future neighborhood park.
