I created this piece because I feel that the city of Salinas has failed to create sufficient amounts of parks pertaining to kids interested specifically in soccer. Yes, there are plans to renovate and add soccer fields to Constitution but those talks have been ongoing since 2008. I did research and found out that the neighboring fields just across Laurel Street claimed that the new plans didn’t foresee the negative effects stormwater would have on the farmland. Taking this new information I’m now on the fence of whether it is worth possibly losing the farmland in order to construct a new Soccer Complex. The new mission is to find a solution where the two can coexist.
