A note from Mark Tamblyn, New Court Construction Committee Chair

The PPC executive has approved the plan for the courts (click the link to view the plan) and the city is labelling it as the final version. I am very pleased we settled on this split version with two seating areas between the new courts. Eventually they will be covered. Both seating areas will have access to the existing courts.

If any of you have questions regarding the new courts, please feel free to communicate them to me. My email address is mtamblyn@pacificcoast.net.

Keep well,
Mark
