The tennis courts at Andersen Park in the town of Mission are getting a makeover.
On December 15, Mission City Council voted 7-0 to hire Kansas City-based resurfacing specialists McConnell & Associates for $ 340,000 to demolish and replace tennis courts, as well as lights, seats, and fences. from the Victor X Andersen Memorial Park, which is just off Mission City Hall at West 61st Street and Woodson Road.
The two tennis courts were installed in the 1960s and renovated in 1978, according to city documents.
City staff reported that the courts have been used well over the years and have been damaged by sunlight, oxidation and surface cracks caused by freezing and thawing.
City staff noted that McConnell & Associates could begin construction on the site in early February 2022, depending on weather conditions.
The final stage of the project, including painting the concrete and scribing, would take place by the end of May.
The updated courts would then be available for use in the summer of 2022, according to the city.
