The Calhoun Commission agreed to accept the gratis transfer of Wayne Underwood Field by the Calhoun County Board of Education. The stipulation being it is used for the benefit of county residents as a recreational area, was also accepted at a special meeting last night.

The board said if the county discontinued recreational use, it would revert back to them.

In a resolution, the Calhoun Commission asked the school board to re-visit their exclusion of a large grassy area next to the main field, known as "The Pit." The area has long been used as a practice field and for numerous sporting events. The exclusion also includes a small parking lot on the old high school street. Both are located on the flood plain, as is the entire complex.

The school board retained the area in hopes they could find a buyer and generate some money for projects at the new Mt. Zion athletic complex.

The Commission's resolution was understanding of the school board's need to generate money, but said "unless the property would bring a considerable amount of money, the over-all benefit to the community and this recreational project, might outweigh the sum generated by the sale." "We are grateful to the school board for their concern for the community." said President McCallister. "We are hopeful this project can move forward and we can do some positive improvements to the area."
