In 2016, the City of Plattsburgh adopted an outdoor field management policy stating the maintenance of the fields will be handled by the sports organizations who use them. A guide for the leagues to properly care for the fields is provided. City of Plattsburgh Recreation performs basic maintenance such as field grooming, refuse removal, building, facility and equipment maintenance, as well as providing some maintenance materials. Recreation staff is available to answer any questions regarding field management techniques that the leagues may have.
The Municipal Lighting Department is actively working on existing electrical issues at Lefty Wilson Field at Penfield Park. We will also be speaking with the league coordinators shortly to discuss mutual responsibilities, and providing the clay and infield mix to care for the fields.
