After 84 days of nothing being done by the Town, I sent an email about the situation to the Town Administrator, Town Planner, Board of Selectmen, and the Community Preservation Committee.
Th next day I received a very nice positive and helpful phone call from the Town Planner who assured me a meeting would take place this coming week between myself, an engineer and various project stakeholders in an effort to get the project started.
Stay tunes for more updates…
Although May 2019 Town Meeting approved the CPA funding for the engineering work for 6 new pickleball courts, now 85 days later, there still has been no engineering work performed. With no communication coming from the town, yesterday I sent an email to the CPA committee, the BOS and the TA asking for a meeting to find out what’s going on. Very frustrating, inactivity is jeopardizing a full year delay, stay tuned…
Beautifully written by Aspen Kern, Pickleball Forum:
I have spent nearly 12 years traveling around the country and playing Pickleball every chance I could find. I have made some realizations that I would like to share with you. Pickleball is a very unique sport for several reasons, at its core it is not about the strive for excellence, the motivation to achieve a higher rating or even about winning. For most people it is about filling a void. Having something positive to think about as we drift off to sleep at night. Seeing friends we have made and making new friends every time we play. Pickleball is about asking Nancy how her garage sale went, seeing if Fred’s surgery on his shoulder went well. Pickleball is about realizing without “you” there is no “me”. We need each other, our community thrives on friendship not medals. Sure, we like to talk about the latest paddle or that great return of serve we just hit, but what we really want is that ” connection” . The kind of connection you can only get when a group comes together under the disguise of a “sport”, a “religion” or a patriotic duty. At the end of the day Pickleball is a family, a family that is grateful for being part of a bigger thing. And an integral part of that bigger thing is a smaller thing, and that is in knowing that every time we step on the court we know someone has got our back. And that, my friend, is priceless. Yes indeed, we need each other !!
