CLICK ON THE PICTURES TO MAKE THEM LARGER
The Eastman Ballfields are moving to the General Shale Site.. better known for years to Riverview residents as "The Brickyard."
"What we have tried to do with the design, is work with the lay of the land," says McCartt. "Whatever cut we need from that site, whatever fill we need from that site, we're able to take from the existing site, so that the eventual layout will balance out. In doing so, we were able to leave, what I feel like, is a decent-sized buffer between the parking lot and the road to the existing homes on Dunbar Street."
The news is met with mixed reviews in the Riverview Community and from Douglass Alumni.

McCartt insists all of those concerns are valid. Although the legacy of Clay Hill is not on a front burner yet, the ballfields' impact on Riverview apparently is.
