West Park Tennis Court Upgrade Approved

Tennis courts at West Park, built in the early 1970s, will be renovated this summer. At is June 21, 2011 meeting, the Ann Arbor park advisory commission recommended approval of a $182,964.60 contract with ABC Paving Co. for the work, which includes a 10% ($16,633.15) contingency. It was the only bid received for the project, but park staff said it’s in line with other tennis court renovations the city has completed.

The project will include replacing the asphalt, fencing, retaining wall, shuffle board court, and entry walk, as well as repairing a second existing retaining wall. The configuration of the courts will remain unchanged. The project would be paid for from the approved FY 2011 proceeds of the park maintenance and capital improvements millage. The recommendation will be forwarded to the city council for final approval.

This brief was filed from the second-floor council chambers at city hall, located at 301 E. Huron St. A more detailed report will follow: [link]
