Over the past few years, there has been an increase in demand for pickleball courts. The existing courts, located south of Crown Point Community Center, have a subsurface issue, resulting in cracking of the playing surface.
The existing courts will need to be removed to improve quality. Removing the courts will allow the current area to be graded and additional courts to be added adjacent to the existing site.
During the public meeting on November 15, four concepts were presented. The four options included:
A. Eight pickleball courts only
B. Tree tennis ball courts only (Could double as pickleball)
C. Mixed-use (tennis and pickleball) on the same courts
D. Two tennis courts and four pickleball courts (independently from each other)
The approved content was D. A request for water and shade is being developed into the plan. The timeline for the project is to accept bids in March/early April. Demolition/construction will begin in May and finish in early October.
There will be no courts available once the demolition occurs.
