Pierce Field plans on display

July 5, 2012

See plans for the proposed Pierce Field Community Building (pictured below) in the Library Atrium.

The proposed restroom, concession, and storage facility—designed by Meyers + Associates, under the guidance of Grandview’s Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and Parks and Recreation Department—would replace three existing buildings: the restroom building, the press box/concession building (behind the main baseball backstop), and the Ox Roast building that sits in left field.

See the designs and read more about the project by stopping in the Library Atrium or visit
