Concrete and Parking Lot Repairs
Removal of the current concrete and base material at M Health Fairview Sports Center near the trash enclosure (access to the sports center will be unaffected), Colby Lake Park Building outside off the shelter, and near the Stonemill Farms Picnic Shelter will take place in August or September.
The north half of the parking lot at the Public Works building, 2301 Tower Drive, will be reconstructed. Spot curb repairs will also take place.
The restrooms at Edgewater Park and near the main picnic shelter at Carver Lake Park will be undergoing renovations beginning the week of Sept. 5. They will remain closed until work is completed in early October. Signage will be posted and portable restrooms will be available onsite.
The tennis and basketball courts at Odawa and Cobblestone Parks will be reconstructed including removal and replacement of the existing nets, fences, basketball standards and asphalt.
The courts at Ridge, Powers Lake East, Bailey’s Arbor, and Fox Run Parks will have the color completely stripped, cracks filled and be repainted.
Park staff will also be crack filling and repainting at 18 tennis and basketball courts around the city. The courts will be temporarily unavailable while the material dries. Any courts that offer lessons will have work completed late summer.
