Sports complex improvements to be approved
JEFFERSON CITY - The Jefferson City Parks and Recreation Commission is set to approve plans for improvements at Optimist Sports Complex Friday morning.
The complex is part of Ellis-Porter Riverside Park. It consists of three baseball fields.
Plans include improvements for two of the three fields: Evening Optimist Field and Kutscher Field.
The plan includes new fences, dugouts, backstops and scoreboards for the fields.
The third field underwent a complete renovation in 2018 and was rededicated as Vogel Field.
Evening Optimist Field and Kutcher Field have not been updated since they were built in the mid-1980s.
Rhad A. Baker Construction out of Fulton will perform the renovations once plans are approved by the Parks and Recreation Commission.
The commission meets at 8 a.m. Friday morning to approve the plans.
