RHINELANDER -
Supporters of a second softball field at Pioneer Park in Rhinelander will need to wait for any decision on if those plans can move forward.

The Parks, Buildings and Grounds Committee decided Monday night to hold a public hearing in front of the full city council before deciding on whether it wants to accept the park plans.

The Rhinelander softball program hopes to build a second softball field at Pioneer Park just south of its existing field. The program would use about $50,000 from donations and fundraisers to build the new field.  Softball coach D.J. DeMeyer tells Newswatch 12 the second field would allow the city to host upwards of 70 games a year, including RHS softball games, tournaments, and city recreation leagues.

But the new field would require cutting down nearly 10 trees and take up space routinely used by the fair and farmers' market.  City Administrator Kristina Aschenbrenner says she's heard from plenty of people worried about space issues.
