BRAWLEY — City officials tentatively chose a site for the city skate park project — the baseball field west of the Lions Center.
During the City Council meeting Tuesday night, city Parks and Recreation Director Karin Morgan asked the council for direction from two options for the park — the baseball field next to the Lions Center and Meserve Park.
The baseball field next to the Lions Center belongs to the Brawley Union High School District.
Morgan recommended the baseball field be swapped with a park site in Parkside Estates near the corners of Imperial Avenue and Flammang Avenue in the northern part of the city.
She said she had talked to BUHSD officials and they seem willing to negotiate regarding the idea.
The Parkside Estates facility is a joint-use park belonging to the city of Brawley and the Brawley Elementary School District.
If the BESD agrees, Morgan said she would like to have a baseball field built for the high school there.
