North Park Electrical Issue - Field Availability (Update)

Mar. 19 Update:
On March 18, CenterPoint has restored electrical power to the North Park field and the electrical service was connected to the Adult Field.  The Electrical Contractor is still working on getting power to the Girls field but expects to have that completed in no later than early next week.  Once this project is completed, the Contractor will begin to work on replacing/repairing the lighting on the Adult permitting.

Mar. 17 Update:
The Electrical contractor has informed us that they expect to have electricity restored to the fields by Friday, March 20.  This outlook is relying on good weather this week to finish the work and CenterPoint showing up to turn power back on to the fields.  Check with your league Coordinators as to when you Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday leagues will resume play.

Mar. 5 Post:
The electrical service to North Park was disconnected by CenterPoint Energy today (March 5) due to a broken pole that has caused an unsafe condition at the electrical boxes.  The Kingwood Services Association Parks Committee responded quickly today by approving funding for the repairs to begin immediately with plans to address the allocation of repair costs at a later time.

At this time, our Sunday COED League will  continue to play games as scheduled.  However, the start of our Spring Tuesday and Friday Church Leagues as well as our Wednesday COED League will be delayed until the repairs are completed.

We have been advised by the contractor performing the repairs that this work is a top priority for them, but that expected rain (next week) and lead time to acquire materials for the job will likely delay field availability 2-3 weeks.

I will update this post as new information is available.  Your league coordinators (Ton, Jonathan, and Brian) will let you know when we are ready to begin our Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday leagues will begin.
