Santa Maria Sets Public Hearing on Proposed Sports Field and Gym Use Policy

The City of Santa Maria Recreation & Parks Commission will be conducting a public hearing in regards to a Sports Field and Gym Use Policy proposed by the Recreation & Parks Department.

The Recreation & Parks Commission will hold this public hearing beginning at 4 p.m. Tuesday, July 8 at City Hall, 110 E. Cook St.

Individuals and groups interested in hearing more details about the proposal or wish to give input are encouraged to attend the meeting.

The proposal is for the commission to consider advancing to the City Council an Athletic Facility Allocation, Usage and Scheduling Policy. This policy would be used to assist the department in facilitating and allocating the limited sport fields and gym space currently available at city facilities and joint use school facilities.

The policy would quantify the amount of time a team or organization will be able to rent a field, open space or gym and set new rates for rentals and light use at these facilities. A copy of the proposed policy will be available at www.cityofsantamaria.org, link to the Recreation and Parks Commission, or at the department office at 615 S. McClelland St. during normal business hours.

Questions may be directed to Ryan Heath, recreation supervisor, at 805.925.0951 x354.

— Ryan Heath is a recreation supervisor for the City of Santa Maria.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
