04 Goals/ desires for future relationship and partnerships between JCPRD and community partners? D.01 Sports Clubs and Leagues • Updates the Heritage Park football: concessions, restrooms, bleachers, parking and walks •

Need additional outdoor space for all sports

Sports Management Association: has potential funding for partnerships

Concern that JCPRD leases fields to private tournament organizations at sub-market rates

All teams need practice fields

Systematically replace all natural turf soccer fields at Heritage with artificial turf for larger tournament play

Maintain one premier natural turf field that is used less to keep in good shape

JCPRD could be a unifying force politically promoting health and wellness initiatives

Develop artificial turf multi-sport facilities that can be used by soccer, football, lacrosse, and field hockey.

Embrace local experts to help raise the level of player and coach education

If JCPRD had better fields they could outsource the league to us and we could run a first class soccer league

We would love to partner on an artificial turf field complex

Would like to see JCPRD keep providing and promoting physical and outdoor activities for the community

HOA: we hope to continue the close relationship in using the JCPRD facilities in the future

Continued availability of the large facilities for the growth of the sport of volleyball
