Mr. Halloran spoke about the lack of soccer fields in the city, pointing out that the city has just 4 (Dilboy, Conway, Capuano and Argenziano). Soccer is also played at Foss Park, however, that field is under DCR jurisdiction and conflicts often arise between soccer and baseball events at that park. Mr. Halloran said that residents are allowed to use the city’s fields by going through a permitting process and he distributed a copy of the city’s policy on the matter.
