On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, 5:30 PM at Urbandale City Hall, the Urbandale Parks and Recreation Commission will consider lease proposals for the Urbandale Soccer Complex, fields at Walker Johnston Park - just west of the skate park (where our U6 teams currently play), and North Walnut Creek by the Urbandale Police Station. There will only be enough time for a couple of people to represent the club at this meeting as stated by the Parks and Recreation Commission. We wanted to share our proposal with you - see attached document.
We believe our proposal demonstrates Urbandale Soccer Club's ongoing commitment to being good stewards of the facilities we use, and in making long lasting investments in the City of Urbandale. It also offers a compromise to eliminate competing demands for the same space with J-Hawk Soccer Club.
Unfortunately, this proposal is viewed as inadequate by J-Hawk Soccer Club. J-Hawk Soccer Club not only wants exclusive use at Walker Johnston and North Walnut Creek, they have asked for exclusive use to one U12 field at the Urbandale Soccer Complex. As part of this process, a lot of information is being shared - not all of which is accurate. We wanted to clear up a few points:
If you have any questions regarding this proposal or the lease process with the city, please contact either Victor Fageroos, USC President, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Scott Vander Hart, USC Vice President, at email@example.com. Thank you for your support.
