Progress is Being Made on New Progress is being made on the New Pickelball Courts in Jackson

Progress is being made on the new pickle ball court in Jackson’s Litz Park. Officials heard an update on the eight-court facility during study session July 19. The 130 x 130 foot asphalt base was laid and fencing and gates have been put in. Next, the playing surface will be painted with an acrylic paint that is often used on tennis courts, and nets will be installed. The SEMO Pickleball Club has paid for the blacktop. The club has raised over $60,000, but needs another $30,000 to finish the project. The city had budgeted funds to pay for the fencing, but the club has already paid for it, so the city has the money for cost sharing.
