A community meeting has been set for June 29 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the possibility of raising funds to build additional ball diamonds in Bloomfield.

The proposed ball diamonds will be built in conjunction with the City of Bloomfield and will be for use by the Davis County Babe Ruth League program and community use.
