Fall Meeting to Follow the SGM
SGM Topic: Field Allocations within the City of Ottawa
The City of Ottawa has updated their allocations policy (policy attached to the email notice to clubs). This will affect all clubs within the City of Ottawa and the allocation of fields to the OCSL. There are three options that the OCSL and its member clubs from Ottawa can select to move forward with. These options are:
- The OCSL not apply for any fields and not provide fields for clubs. Clubs will thus have to apply for fields on their own, as well as be responsible for the maintenance of the fields.
- The OCSL applies, maintains, and assigns fields for all adult teams for all City of Ottawa clubs.
- Status quo – the OCSL applies for the field space that it normally applies for
These options will be detailed in the SGM as well as the pros and cons of each option and the new allocations policy.
The Allocations department will be sending out field applications late September and require a response by October 10th. The OCSL needs to be directed by this date as to what and how many fields to include in the application for summer 2017. A representative of the allocations department will also be in attendance to help with the explanation.
