BRAINERD CITY COUNCIL: Miracle Field location concerns raised


Concerns for parking problems with the planned Miracle Field at Bane Park were raised before the Brainerd City Council Monday. 

“I do feel awkward having to bring this up,” said Mark Ostgarden, city planner. 

Ostgarden said the city had a wonderful opportunity for the Miracle Field, a ball field for physically and mentally challenged children. The Park Board recommended the Bane Park location in south Brainerd and the council previously welcomed and approved it.
