Last week we included some pictures of work being done on the baseball field and adjacent areas at the Poinsettia Recreation Center. We said we would include pictures of the work on the outdoor basketball courts when we had them. And now we have them:
These pictures were taken today. What’s happening here is preparation and installation of new lighting for the basketball courts. The new lighting will be more efficient and have better controls to avoid the lights being on when not needed, as we’ve sometimes seen. Some of the existing poles will be reused and, in other cases, new poles need to be installed.
The contractor said that he expects the new lighting to be installed by the end of next week. Then the installation of the new playing surfaces can begin. We’ll update you on progress as the improvements in this area and other areas of the Center move ahead.
