CHAMBERSBURG — Work will begin this summer to repair and restore two heavily used borough tennis courts, borough council decided this week.

Memorial Park and Henninger Field Park have been flagged by Chambersburg Recreation Department for the restoration work.

Borough Manager Jeffrey Stonehill told council both publicly used tennis courts were in “serious disrepair.”

“They… are important community facilities, and heavily used,” he said.

The recreation department also wants to refurbish tennis courts at Buchanan Elementary School but is still working out details of that project with the Chambersburg Area School District.

The courts are on school district property but are open for use by the public.

Cracks such as this n the playing surface of tennis courts at Memorial Park in Chambersburg  will be fixed with a repair and refurbishment project this summer.

Money for the $355,780 refurbishment project will come from leftover funds from a $10 million 2016 Recreation Bond that financed a new aquatic center built in 2017.

The work will be done by Nagel Athletic Surfaces of East Syracuse, New York. The contractor was chosen by COSTARS, the state’s cooperative purchasing program.

By participating in COSTARS, the borough bypasses the competitatively bidding process, according Stonehill.

At a total cost of $355,780, the projects will be entirely paid for with proceeds left from the 2016 Recreation Bond, borrowed almost three years ago, to build the Chambersburg Aquatic Center and make park and playground improvements.

The bond fund started 2019 with a balance of $903,900 in available resources. More information can be obtained by contacting Julie Redding, Recreation Superintendent, at jredding@chambersburgpa.go
