New Suffolk Civic Association members got what they were looking for at Tuesday’s school board meeting: approval to begin a volunteer effort to restore the neighborhood’s baseball field.

While the New Suffolk school board unanimously approved the project at Tuesday’s meeting, school president Tony Dill said that the civic association still needs to submit a detailed drawing of the proposal before work could begin.

Civic president Paul Cacioppo said he’s pleased with the school board’s decision because many people have been saddened by the field’s sorry state. He also said his group already has volunteers lined up to turn it back into a regulation field, as well as a nice green space residents can enjoy.

“It was what we were hoping would happen,” he said about the project’s approval.
