Only organizations that schedule and administer bi-county based leagues will be allowed the use of lighted fields.
FIELD ALLOCATION MEETINGS
The Athletic Field Allocation meeting process is to let applicants know what fields they will have prior to their permits being issued. If there are multiple requests for the same field, the process is to amicably allocate the field usage. When processsing permit applications, every effort is made to provide each qualifying organization with some field time.
