Completion of McKelvey Fields Delayed to Summer of 2019

The McKelvey Detention Basin project is estimated to be completed in July 2019 or later. We will be utilizing the Shoreline Athletic Fields complex in 2019 as we did for 2018. An adverse impact from the delay may be that we can only field one Juniors Division team due to insufficient big baseball diamond availability in Mountain View.
