Foundation To Build Diamond, Parks

Item: Its purpose is parks: New foundation wants to bring more green space to Idaho Panhandle/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: New name, new logo and one expanded mission. Say hello to the Panhandle Parks Foundation, the nonprofit organization helping build an approximately $3 million state-of-the-art baseball stadium at Cherry Hill Park. ... While the foundation contracted Jim Faucher recently at $2,500 per month for six months to facilitate fundraising with an end goal of building the ball yard, the foundation's goals stretch beyond baseball, beyond Coeur d'Alene even.

Question: Will a $3M baseball diamond on Cherry Hill satisfy the city requirement that it provide an equal or better facility before moving American Legion Baseball from McEuen Field?
