Important Meeting

The Boise Pickleball Club Promotion Committee along with Boise Parks and Recreation (P&R) have been working on plans for a new dedicated 12 or 14 pickleball court  facility at Hobble Creek Park behind the YMCA at 5939 Discovery Way, Boise.

Because plans call for changes to the existing park, P&R has a legal obligation to hold a public hearing  to solicit input from nearby homeowners.

This hearing is going to be held Tuesday, May 19, 2015, at 5:30 p.m., at Cecil Andrus Elementary (south of Chinden Avenue, first street west of Discovery Lane traffic light).

P&R is also  soliciting comments from those not able to attend the meeting.

Comments may be addressed to Kelly Burrows, Project Manager, at kburrows@cityofboise.org or (208) 608-7634.

The pb planning committee is pleading for all pbers to attend this meeting.

MOST IMPORTANTLY – our pickleball friends who live within a 2 mile radius of Hobble Creek Park need to be in attendance if at all possible.

There appears to be some opposition to the facility from nearby residents.  We believe the negatives are coming from residents who do not know anything about the sport and consequently don’t know how the game is played or taken the opportunity to learn.
