Input <br /> from the Board was noted by Seaman. <br /> Director's Report: <br /> With $350,000 spent on improvements to the Campbell softball fields in the fall of 2012, there is <br /> concern to protect the quality of these fields. Seaman discussed locking the Campbell ball <br /> fields (1-3) and making them a fee-based only facility to protect the upgrades. There are ball <br /> fields available for use without a reservation and fee— Koethe field at Greenbelt Park, Linnan <br /> Park, Stonegate Park and a practice field south of the tennis courts at Campbell Recreation <br /> Area. The Board was in agreement with this policy. <br />
