The quest for political allies continues for the directors of 25 fields for Oregon.
Carrie Cool, executive director of the non-profit organization looking to build 25 soccer and lacrosse fields just outside of Keizer next year, spoke to the Keizer City Council Monday evening along with Ken Sandblast, secretary of the organization.
Members of the group have previously spoken with other groups in Keizer, including multiple visits to the Keizer Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. Monday was the group’s first presentation to the council.
Cool, who noted the group has an agreement to purchase 195 acres of land across I-5 from Volcanoes Stadium, believes a large facility is needed in order to attract large lacrosse or soccer tournaments.
