McKinley School Pickleball and Tennis Courts Could Be Renovated by City

Published on Sunday, June 12, 2022 | 5:46 am

The City Council will likely move forward with a contract for NoHo Constructors for the renovations at the McKinley School Pickleball and Tennis Courts located at 325 South Oak Knoll Avenue, for an amount not to exceed $217,625.

McKinley School has four existing·tennis courts that have not been used in five years due to their dilapidated condition. As per city staff, the concrete courts are severely cracked and the protective court surfacing and striping have deteriorated to an unplayable condition.

Due to the increasing demand for pickleball facilities, the city is proposing the restoration of the four tennis courts to include two dedicated pickleball courts, two dedicated tennis courts, and one hybrid court with striping to accommodate a tennis court or two additional pickleball courts.

As per city staff report, the scope of the work of NoHo Constructors would include crack repairs, resurfacing, striping for pickleball and tennis courts, installation of new pickleball and tennis court posts and netting, chain link gate and fence repairs and installation of new site furnishings  including benches and trimming of trees and shrubs impacting the court playing area.

“It is recommended that NoHo Constructors be awarded the contract for this project as they are the lowest responsive and responsible bidder. The proposed contract with NoHo Constructors fully complies with the Competitive Bidding and Living Wage Ordinances,” staff report stated.

NoHo Constructors has satisfactorily performed work for the City in the past, including the renovation of the Brookside Park Tennis Courts in 2018 for a contract amount of $390,000, and the renovation of the Robinson Park Outdoor Basketball Courts in 2021 for a contract amount of $450,000, among other projects.

Aside from the contract approval, city staff is also asking the City Council to amend the 2010 master joint use agreement between the city and the PUSD on the use of the McKinley School Sports Courts to allow the construction of the project.

The cost of the court repairs and improvements, as per the agreement, will be shouldered by the City. Maintenance of the courts shall be the sole responsibility of PUSD.

Under the amendment, the City-use period during the school year will be from 4:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on weekdays and 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on weekends with the exception of scheduled PUSD events.
