How soon?
They will begin work in the Spring. I don't know what order they will go in for sure. The Maple Secondary will be larger project as the track is getting redone as well.

Parking is the biggest concern at both places and how do they make more.

  1. Albion Sports Complex - upgrade all-weather gravel fields to a synthetic field. This also includes adding spectator seating, change rooms and improvements to lighting on existing field spaces to extend their use. This will reduce parking on the site for other community events and those implications will be a part of the conversation.
  2. Maple Ridge Secondary Track Facility - addition of lighting, improved and expanded seating, enhancements to the track facilities, added areas for 'throws' sports that are part of the athletics component of track meets.
  3. 5,000 Capacity Stadium - includes a track, sports field, covered seating, change rooms, concession space and the associated parking required for such a facility.

Albion all weather must be practice turf only. There's no room for a full field. Maybe 4 smaller practices turfs or something?

Interesting. Doesn't seem to be that much room

Would be nice if they fixed that parking lot though along with it. It's a shot ahow

That's the biggest issue is the parking, they also need to pave it.
We are down there a lot in the summer for kids fastpitch and the number of times we've seen people triple parked and blocking people in is ridiculous. The wife tore a strip off one lady who triple parked us in because "she saw an open spot and just did what everyone else did :rolleyes:

I did not want to be that lady that day. It was entertaining though!!!

Hope this gets Done. Would be a great place to Host 5000 of Maple Ridges finest Crack heads for a sit down Christmas dinner. And none of them Drive ( unless the car is stolen) So parking wont be an issue.
