Resolution to Approve a Contract with Laser Striping and Sport Surfacing to Convert One Tennis Court to Two Pickleball Courts while Renovating both the Tennis Court and Basketball Court Surfaces at Burns Park ($87,450.00)

Based on survey results and comments received, a majority favored incorporating permanent pickleball infrastructure in the redesign. The survey results are attached as a reference.
