Project Update

03/20/20…..A Silver Lining!
While High Point is currently closed as a preventive measure to COVID-19 , construction work has continued as we await clearance to re-open.
 
New fencing, re-painted posts, and installment of new gates is almost complete on Courts 7-10 as well as the Pickleball-Quick Start courts. The new pro shop’s elevator shaft is also starting to take shape. Work on fencing, posts, and gates for courts 1-6 is expected to start next week.
 
Good things are still happening!
03/06/20
Work has been underway re-painting fence posts and installing new fencing, windscreens and gates. On the interior sides, the fences are being lowered to allow for better viewing. This has been completed on courts 12-18 for the most part. The fencing and windscreens on courts 19-21 are now being replaced. Courts will also be re-surfaced this summer once the weather stabilizes.
                
The slab for the building was poured today!
 
Frequent rains in January and February have slowed the project considerably (laying of utility lines and preparation of building foundation). As a result, the expected completion date has been pushed backed to November 2020.
01/03/20
The laying of new utility lines is almost complete, the pouring of concrete for the new parking lot was finished recently, and the drilling of piers for the new building should start soon. We expect the replacement of the chain link fencing and windscreens to start in the next few weeks. While the pace of construction slowed considerably during the holidays, the crews having been working at a good pace and the project is currently on schedule.
 
While the utility work is being done (including trenching), the entrance to the facility will move around. Directional signs are posted to assist customers.

It is expected that the area in front of the shop will remain torn up through the end of next week. One trench has been dug, the corresponding line (water, sewer, fire, etc), has been laid and the hole filled. However, there are three more trenches to be dug, and the lines laid in that same area. The entrance to the facility is expected to remain the same until the three trenches are completed.

11/17/19:
The main sidewalk entrance in to the facility will be closed for the next week (November 18-24) . Please refer to the photos below and follow the green arrows as noted, as this will be the only entrance into the facility at this time. Part of the entrance detour goes through our pickleball/quickstart courts. 

10/25/19:

Pogue Construction Company broke ground last week, on the long awaited 4.5 million dollar project to update our facility. Phase 1 includes the demolition of court 11 (shown in photo), the building of a new parking lot along Spring Creek Pkwy and the construction of a new pro shop between court 12 and the Pickleball courts (where court 11 was).

In Phase 1, we will also lose court 12 while the contractor uses it as a staging area. We will also lose about one-half of the north parking lot for the same reason.

Phase 2 will include the construction of a new court 11 and a children’s playground. The entire project is expected to take one year to complete.

We have been asked by the contractor and the City of Plano to ask our players to not carry on conversations with the construction workers during the project. Therefore, if you have a question about the work or design, please ask High Point staffers who will get an answer for you or direct you to the right person to get the answer. Of course, we ask you to stay out of the construction areas. If you lose a ball to the construction area, come inside and we will replace it.

We will periodically update you on the status of the project. In the meantime, feel free to ask us about the exciting things happening at High Point.

Coming in Fall, 2020
