Document Description
Construction of two public, soft-surface tennis courts at Del mar Park, a nine-acre park located in north Morro Bay. The City of Morro Bay currently has two unlit public tennis courts at Monte Young Park available for a population of approximately 10,000 residents. The courts are used for numerous scheduled programs such as City sponsored "Tennis Playday," City sponsored tennis lessons, league play, tournaments, as well as drop-in-play. The next closet public tennis court includes two in the area, the proposed tennis courts at Del Mar Park are in high demand. The tennis courts have been master planned for Del Mar Park since the original conception of the park, prior to 1980. During the many public hearings regarding the park and subsequent to the development of the park, the public has not voiced concern regarding the recreation facilities. The courts are not located adjacent to residences and are bordered by an elementary school playground on one side and the park's roller hockey rink on the other. The courts are also located in a bowl-depression area that creates berms on each side. As evidenced with the roller hockey rink the berms successfully keep sound from traveling into the surrounding neighborhood. The proposed project would add two (2) new "soft-surface" (i.e. astro turf) tennis courts adjacent to the roller hockey rink in the southwest quadrant of Del Mar Park. The tennis courts would be encompassed within a typical chain link fence but not include nighttime lighting.
