Rembrandt Park tennis courts update

I have received a number of inquiries re the status of  the Rembrandt Park tennis courts, for which I worked long and hard over the years to obtain a much needed facelift to the tune of $167,000. Preliminary work began last fall, but we needed to wait for nice weather to arrive this spring (and it was late) to  finish the job.
 
As Eric Ibey, the city's coordinator of Urban Development and our point man on the project explains,  there are reasons for the delays.  Notably,  the late spring caused all contractors to be backed up this year which means everyone is running behind. 
 
Here is Eric's update:
 
Surfacing:  This requires one more coat  and two days to cure after the final coat.
 
Fencing:  This is  lined up for next Wednesday.  The company hired will be repairing the holes as well as fixing the bottom of the fence along the perimeter of both courts.  That should represent two days of work.
 
New Lighting: The final wiring has been installed.
 
If all goes well people should be playing tennis by May 30 or 31. Let's just hope the weather is cooperative and the stars align.
