Phase 1 would see the construction of three soccer-multi-use fields, which would be paid for at a cost of $1.3 million from the city park development fund as well as state grants.

According to the City of Pasco website:

" The project calls for the extension of Elm Street to the south to give access to the site, a parking lot, a walking path along the new road, a drinking fountain, a shelter for portable toilets, and the development of grass playing field areas large enough to hold 3 full-sized 210' x 330' multi-use sports fields."

Next week during the council meeting, formal approval on Phase 1 will be voted on by the council. These fields would greatly increase sports capacity in the city, and also allow for a lot more tournaments and other events that bring in teams from all over the region--which helps the local tourism economy.
