Last week Alderman Vasquez held a community meeting with Amundsen High School and the Chicago Park District regarding the field conditions for Amundsen athletes and the request for a turf field at Winnemac Park. In order to gauge support, the Alderman is sharing a survey to get your feedback. This feedback is preliminary, to show if there is substantial community support for turf fields for the baseball diamond and soccer field closest to Foster Avenue. PLEASE FILL OUT THE SURVEY TODAY and they will share results at the Amundsen Athletics Foundation meeting on May 12th.
