Ramona Girls Softball League will receive $46,993 of the $674,763 county supervisors approved in District 2 Neighborhood Reinvestment Program disbursements.
The league will use the money for field security, electrical upgrades and irrigation improvements. The supervisors found the project to be exempt from California Environmental Quality Act review.
The Neighborhood Reinvestment Program provides grants to nonprofit organizations for public purposes at the
regional and community levels. In addition to nonprofit organizations, the county can also fund schools and fire departments, and supervisors can use the money to supplement other county funding for specific projects such as county parks, roads and libraries.
Ramona Girls Softball League serves approximately 180 girls and their families, according to the county report. Increased security when the field is not in use will help deter trespassers and minimize clean-up times before practices and games.
The field’s electrical and irrigation facilities are in need of repairs and upgrades to ensure the safety and security of the fields and to ensure that the players are not exposed to safety risks, states the report.
