Did Aurora Park Board go to the dogs, hit a home run, or do swimmingly well in November?
The board approved some changes at the Aurora Little League fields, discussed a location change for the planned dog park, agreed the River City Classic Car Show could be at Waterways Park in June, and learned the city had gotten a grant for its swimming pool.
Paul Kunkel, ALL president, said the league wanted to improve its facility in hopes of being the site of a district tournament in a few years. The league wants to increase the size of and fence its second field to meet requirements, and add a sprinkler system for the grass.
“It is impossible to extend Field 1 to make it the main field,” said Kunkel. The cost of enlarging the first field, for materials only, is about $7,200, plus another $3,000 to $4,000 for a sprinkler system and $2,200 to plant grass.
