Public input meeting for the design of new pickleball and replacement tennis and basketball courts at Burchard Park.Taking place Wednesday, January 18, 2023, 7 PM.
The Recreation Master Plan Steering Committee is hosting a public input meeting for the construction of pickleball courts and demolition and reconstruction of tennis and basketball courts courts being planned at Burchard Park.
Six pickleball courts will be located near the southwest parking area. Several changes have been made to the concept shared last fall. Design is being funded through the Community Preservation Act.
In addition to pickleball, the RMPSC is proposing a demolition and reconstruction of the existing tennis and basketball courts as part of the same project. The courts have experienced excessive surface and foundational cracking. The damage is too severe to be remedied through a standard re-surfacing and can become hazardous in the near future. Doing both at the same time will result in substantial cost savings for the town. Design for this portion is being funded through the Recreation Department enterprise fund.

The meeting will take place Wednesday, January 18, 7 PM via Zoom, with log-in information available on the agenda. Please consider attending and giving your feedback.
