Northampton County announced that it is regarding the purchase of the Randy Custis Memorial Park in Nassawadox. During the previous Board of Supervisors meeting Supervisor LeMond called it a “Golden Opportunity” for the County’s Parks and Recreation Department.
According to LeMond the principals of the Park have requested $20,000 to cover staff salaries for the next 6 months while the County and the Randy Custis Board of Directors discuss the specifics of the acquisition.
Randy Custis Memorial Park is home to Shore Little League, Shore Softball League and Shore Soccer. The complex consists of 30 acres, 5 baseball fields, 5 soccer fields, a utility building to house maintenance equipment, Volley Ball Courts, night lighting, bleachers and other amenities. The programs that call the park home have been named some of the most successful on the Shore.
The Randy Custis Board will remain in place and continue fundraising efforts and programs for the immediate future. The $20,000 required by Randy Custis staff will come from the undesignated fund balance acting as a bridge while details, revenue, and expenditure are worked out.
