SJU's proposed sports complex plan is unacceptable

Saint Joseph\'s University plans to convert the existing (formerly Episcopal Academy) sports fields into 6 fields for NCAA, Division I, and Atlantic 10 Conference intercollegiate games and intramural sports with 1000+ seats, 35\' nets, PA sound system. Neighbors along N Latches Lane, Raynham Road, Berwick Road, N Highland Ave and other adjacent residences within a couple of blocks from the fields strongly object this plan. Because of the noise that will be generated by spectators and the amplified sound systems, because of the frequency of use of the now intercollegiate baseball, softball and field hockey fields, neighbors petition Saint Joseph\'s University to reconsider the current plan in order to preserve the quietness of this residential neighborhood.
