McEvoy Fields to be eliminated? read below.......

The De Anza Cove Amendment to the Mission Bay Master Plan (De Anza Project) proposes to eliminate the existing Youth Fields in their entirety
. The larger baseball field and the softball field will be converted into a combination of Marsh, Wetlands, Coastal Dunes and a Multi-use Trail. The remaining portions of the Youth Fields are identified to be added to a future and currently unprogrammed, 44-acre Active Recreation area. The specific ultimate use of the Active Recreation area will be determined by a General Development Plan (GDP) process where the current Multi-use Field, Tennis Courts and Golf Course users will compete with other new potential users (aquatic center, etc.) to secure a portion of a significantly reduced footprint of available athletic area.

Green highlighted area shows recreational area to remain; possibly 2 small baseball fields? what about basketball, softball, tennis and Golf?

Subject: Please "Save our Fields"

Honorable Mayor, Council Members, Park Committee Board, City Staff & Civic Leaders,
I am writing to express my support for the preservation and protection of the Bob McEvoy Youth
Athletic Fields
As you may already be aware, the City's current De Anza Cove plan will eliminate these historic
youth athletic fields utilized by thousands of youth baseball, softball and soccer athletes from all
over the City each year, and turn it into wetlands and salt marsh.
Please reconsider the City's plans to eliminate them as a part of its De Anza Cove wetlands and
camping master plan. These fields are an irreplaceable asset utilized by kids from all over the City.
We believe that the City has many options to re-develop the De Anza Cove area to create new
wetlands, salt marsh & low cost visitor accommodations while simultaneously preserving & 
protecting this valuable community asset. 

Thank you in advance for all of your efforts to protect youth sports and to serve our "Finest City"
