Tully Park Improvements on Salem City Council AgendaThe Salem City Council will be asked Monday night to approve a cooperative effort with Salem Community High School to improve Tully Park for both girl's softball and soccer.
City Manager Bill Gruen feels this is a win-win project for the high school's girls softball program and provide better youth soccer facilities. "Frala Park where the high school plays now is not the best high school softball playing facility and we don't have the best youth soccer fields over at Tully. I think we have a really great way to cooperate to improve Tully Park for girls softball and youth soccer," said Gruen.
The six-year agreement calls for the city to cut down trees necessary for playing space, re-seed the area damaged by development work, and to provide in-kind assistance with heavy equipment for the development.
Under the agreement, Salem High would development the softball fields and mowing the field areas during the softball season. The city would be responsible for removing trash and for maintaining/cleaning the restroom facilities. Salem High would control the use of the softball fields between March 1st and June 15th of each calendar year.
