Fortunately, construction continued during our state-mandated closure during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to more accommodating weather, work was finished under the main walkway and yes! The workers were able to save those beautiful trees. Bids are now being solicited for court re-surfacing.
The most exciting development has been delivery of materials for the new pro shop. So in the spirit of “a picture is worth a thousand words,” enjoy the latest photos!
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.
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.
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.
