What am I missing here??
What is there to be confused about? The field was built without any thought of whether it was legal to do so, and modern accessibility requirements, and basic construction standards were ignored. Welcome to Montebello.

Or is a historical field?
Play Ball
BTW Bill Molinari supported a proposal for new fields where there used to be fields behind Whittier Narrows Dam near the Adobe
What happened to that great proposal?

The Great Gloria Molina BARELY got the Army Corps of Engineers to agree to the Bosque del Rio, after years of intense negotiation, which is only in an overflow water storage area (50 year flood). The area where Mr. Molinari wants to have a park (I am not aware of anyone proposing any playing fields) is in the Primary Water Replensihment Area, which fills up virtually every time it rains (remember rain?).

The Army Corps is not enthused about the idea, which only included a flat grassy area, possibly for soccer..
Wonder why

The city's proposal for the park/fields (grant request) was submitted to the Rivers and Mountains Conservancy but that agency didn't rank it high enough for funds to be awarded at this time (Many other entities also submitted requests, some were ranked higher than Montebello's). The city is looking for other grant possibilities.
