Loretta Conway, assisted by CS4L Chair Steve ("Moz") Modzelewski and Building Project Committee Chair Jeff Temple, presented our dream of building a new indoor/outdoor pickleball center to the Steamboat Springs City Council this evening. The Council responded to the thorough presentation with enthusiasm, asking good questions as well as requesting more detailed cost figures.
City Council's approval at this point means the Court Sports for Life board can begin negotiations with the City in earnest to work out a land-lease deal and a schedule for the transfer of operations of the entire Tennis & Pickleball Complex to CS4L. We can also contact contractors to validate our ballpark estimate for the project, a step that would have been premature prior to City Council's approval of the concept.
It is important to note that the building design is far from final – the Building Project Committee will continue to research ways to improve the design and/or lower costs.
The timing of the negotiations and cost estimating could take several months so stay tuned for more developments! You can subscribe to this blog to get notified of new posts.
