Phase 2 will expand the playing fields to include space for rugby and cricket, as well as the Miracle Field, which will allow people of all physical abilities to play baseball. The city has already received interest in a cricket field, according to city staff.
“I want to thank staff for getting this put together. I’m glad we were able to get this wrapped in the [tax increment reinvestment zone] so we are able to accelerate this project and get it out there for the west side [of Pearland],” Council Member Tony Carbone said.
The city is expecting to submit the notice to proceed for the project in December with the project completed in August 2021. The fields would open for leagues in early spring 2022.
Phase 1 of the project included the construction of the restrooms, the concession building, the lawn amphitheater, baseball fields, playground equipment, lighting and detention and was completed in 2016, according to meeting agenda documents.
