The port-owned land is slated to become a public park after 2010, when a three-year contract with Eastview Little League will expire.
Backed by Councilwoman Janice Hahn, baseball supporters argued that the fields should stay as public facilities.
Meeting attendees were invited to submit written answers to four questions:
- What do you value about Knoll Hill (i.e., that it’s a natural place? Its views? Its history?)
- What is missing on Knoll Hill and in your community in terms of open space? What would be a draw to get people up to Knoll Hill?
- What are you concerned about happening on Knoll Hill in the future?
- Do you have any additional comments you’d like for us to hear?
Responses to these questions can be emailed to Norma Fernandez at Los Angeles Neighborhood Initiative, firstname.lastname@example.org.
