Decision on Saanich clay court proposal expected Saturday

Saanich’s third public meeting to give the public an opportunity to voice their opinions on the proposed clay tennis court facility at Cedar Hill Park happens Saturday (Feb. 1).

The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. at Garth Homer Society (813 Darwin Ave.) and will run all day, if necessary, to give everyone who wants to speak a chance to do so.

Mayor Frank Leonard says the Saturday date was chosen because all members of council are available to attend. As such, Leonard expects a decision on the clay courts will be made at the meeting.

The first two meeting on the planned tennis facility, held Nov. 28 and Jan. 23, drew large crowds and long lines of speakers. To date Saanich council has heard from 92 speakers.
