This Weds, the City Council of Oceanside will vote to approve the additional funds needed to build more courts at Melba Bishop. We have been raising money and working with the Oceanside staff for many years, and this is the closest we have ever been to having construction begin. Please go to https://www.ci.oceanside.ca.us/gov/council/agenda.asp and look for the Council meeting agenda tab. There you will find the request from Deputy Mayor Keim and Councilmember Weiss to allocate monies to subsidize the shortfall of the private funds the MBPBA has collected for the project.
Your letter stating support for more courts to be built at Melba Bishop is essential to let the council members know how much we need these additional courts to begin this year. All council members will receive your email if you address it to:Council@oceansideca.org
It is Item 29 on the April 7 agenda. Your email can be as simple as “Please support Item 29: the request for funds to go towards construction of additional Pickleball courts at Melba Bishop Recreation Center.”
If you are interested in speaking, follow the instructions on the City of Oceanside website. Contact Jenae Alms if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org 949-378-5073
