I have recently moved to Terrell and have heard several concerned residents talking about the recent bond election that was held and that they are hearing part of that money will be spent to remove and repurpose the land that is now and has been used for the 14 rec soccer fields at Gill Park.

Q. -I have recently moved to Terrell and have heard several concerned residents talking about the recent bond election that was held and that they are hearing part of that money will be spent to remove and re-purpose the land that is now and has been used for the 14 rec soccer fields at Gill Park. Can you please let me know if this is true? We are actually wanting to work with the city to see about lighting those fields as opposed to losing them. Your reply would be greatly appreciated.

Answer – Thanks for your inquiry.

The City of Terrell and the Terrell Independent School District are currently evaluating Ben Gill Park property to determine the exact location of the athletic facility, which may or may not include relocating some soccer fields.

Sincerely,

 

D.J. Ory, Mayor
