Hackett Park Proposal
Update May 28
The District of Sechelt has now posted its online survey requesting feedback on our Hackett Park proposal. We encourage all pickleball players on the Coast to complete the survey - it's anonymous and only takes minutes to complete.
TAKE THE SURVEY!
Update May 19
Sechelt Council endorsed the Park Manager recommendation to gather feedback from the public regarding our proposal. Watch for a sign posted at Hackett courts providing details on how to provide the feedback.
When the SCPA learned in early May that the District of Sechelt (DoS) had allocated $24,000 to resurfacing the Hackett Park pickleball/tennis courts, we submitted a proposal on May 6 to DoS to dedicate one court to tennis and convert the other tennis court to 4 dedicated pickleball courts.
On May 14 we were very pleased to learn that our proposal had been reviewed by the Parks Manager (Jayme Anderson) and submitted back to Council for a decision on whether or not to move the proposal forward. Our proposal is Item 10.2 on the May 19 Regular Council Meeting.
Of particular interest in Jayme's report to Council is the summary of the DoS survey responses for court usage where 54% of 125 responses identified pickleball and 22% tennis. Members are encouraged to attend (virtually) the Council meeting - details for attending are on the DoS meeting agenda.
If Council accepts Jayme's recommendation to gather feedback from the public regarding our pickleball proposal, we need you to provide the feedback! As soon as SCPA knows the details regarding the feedback they will be posted here.
