Tiburon to look at McKegney Green use again as club sports sideline other activities

Tiburon’s parks commission is, once again, reevaluating which groups can use the McKegney Green athletic field and when, as officials say priority access for soccer and lacrosse has been sidelining other community activities.

 

According to David Eshoo, the public works engineering manager and commission liaison, the town has rejected field-use requests for the likes of dog parades, family gatherings, church events, meditation walks and a neighborhood flag-football game, all because of scheduling conflicts and the official pecking order under the town’s field-use policy. 

“There is no room for any other groups on that field,” Eshoo said at the March 28 Parks, Open Space and Trails Commission meeting, where Chair Liz Judge and Commissioner Michael Moon were appointed to a subcommittee to review and recommend changes.

 

Eshoo said the goal is to figure out how to expand community use of the space — suggesting a quarter of the field could be open year-round for residents — and that he hopes to get the recommendations to the Town Council for approval before the end of the year.
