The proposed project would involve renovations and additions to the portion of Hidden Valley Park north of Center Avenue, including renovations to existing amenities and addition of new amenities, including pickleball courts. The project objective is to provide pickleball amenities to meet the increased demand from the City of Martinez’s pickleball community. The project site currently includes two existing tennis courts and an area that is vacant located between the northern tennis court and the half-basketball court. The project includes the following improvements:
? Court #1. Resurface and restripe an existing court for tennis (Court #1), upgrade existing lights at Court #1, and provide new site amenities for sitting and socializing.
? Court #2. Convert an existing tennis court (Court #2) to four pickleball courts (Courts #2A, #2B, #2C, and #2D), which would include resurfacing and restriping; add new fencing; upgrade existing lights; and provide new site amenities for sitting and socializing.
? Court #3. Construct four new pickleball courts (Courts #3A, #3B, #3C, and #3D) north of Courts #2A to #2D on an existing vacant area; add new fencing; add new lighting; and provide new site amenities for sitting and socializing
? New Access. Add pavement between Courts #2 and the proposed Court #3 and a new access path to Court #3.
Implementation of the project would not result in the removal of trees; however, some minor vegetation removal would be required. The project would include a fully automatic water-conserving irrigation system comprised of drip and bubbler applications. Landscaping irrigation control would be operated by a weather-based controller with a rain sensor control to minimize watering during and after rain events.
