sports responsibly, with no impact on family time.

• Practice will end at 8:30pm Mon.-Thur. and
on 9:00pm Fri.-Sat. -Lights will shut off 30
• No night events will be scheduled on Sunday

Who is funding the remodel?
• This project will be funded by the residual impact fees from the Davis Park project and a corporate sponsor.
• Remodel costs will not be funded by tax
reductions, assessments, or grants from the St. Johns County residents.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
PVAA has been working diligently with our county administrators over the last three years to outline responsible methods to expand our field capacity. Our efforts have been driven by increased participation across all our sports, but particularly in our baseball, lacrosse, and soccer programs where we are now at capacity and are having to turn some applicants away. Our collaboration with county officials has resulted in a number of responsible solutions that will allow PVAA to manage future enrollment in youth sports.
Now is the time to reach out to our County Commissioners! They will vote soon on allowing lights to be installed at Cornerstone Park. Here is how you can make a difference
To ensure this approval occurs in the near future, PVAA must show our county commissioners and administration officials that this project has the overwhelming support of our families and the greater athletic community.
In April many of you signed a petition- thank you! To make a bigger impact we must email our commissioners directly.
Step 1: Please copy these emails

The PVAA Board of Directors recently outlined a proposal with the St Johns County Parks and Recreation Department to refurbish Cornerstone Park, update its infrastructure, and expand its field capacity.
This proposal includes the construction of a new playground, installation of new safety equipment, and installation of field lighting at the baseball and football fields. The refurbishment would be funded by a private sponsorship opportunity PVAA negotiated on behalf of St Johns County Parks, and impact fees funded by the County Administration, so the cost to St Johns County taxpayers have been minimized.
This remodel and light installation will allow PVAA to enroll 350+ additional kids per season in our baseball, football, and lacrosse programs and allow us to manage our growth since there are no new parks scheduled to be constructed at this time.
Thank you so much for your support of this project. If you have any questions, please let us know. Thank you!
