Marko Labudovic started this petition to Town of Belmont, MA Select Board

We are signing this petition to protect JV Soccer Field. Any future expansion of the Ice Rink, creation of more parking spaces, and/ or additional tennis courts West of Harris Field within the Belmont High School campus MUST protect JV Soccer Filed. Also, overlapping JV Soccer field with Softball and Baseball fields, as we have seen in some of the plans paid by the Town, is NOT a good solution. We need more dedicated soccer fields, not less, and so the solution is not to have three sports sharing overlaping fileds. Namely, there are ~50-60 of us, adult Belmont citizens that play soccer on JV field, four times a week, all year round. We have been playing soccer on this filed for the past 20+ years, and we have no other place to play if this field is taken from us. There have been several generations playing soccer on this field together, at the same time, ranging from 18 years old to over 75 years old. This is not only the field where we play, but also a place where we enjoy each others company and where great friendships have been made, generation after generation, for the last 20+ years. In addition, this field is also used heavily by Belmont High School students for practice soccer games. We need JV Soccer field for people of many generations to continue to play and meet. We need more soccer fields on BHS campus, and in the Town of Belmont in general, and not less. We urge you to hep us protect JV Soccer filed for people from Belmont to continue playing soccer! We urge you to protect generations of friendship that have been built into this field!
