The majority of facilities updates Wednesday will be on construction of a new grandstand for the Henry Field Stadium courts at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex, McGarity said. Cost for that project is now expected to exceed $8 million. The board also will be briefed on plans to add a new six-court indoor tennis facility for the complex.
“That will be the only action item on Wednesday,” McGarity said.
To date, none of the monies raised from the Magill Society have gone toward tennis. That is the sport Magill oversaw for decades before his death in 2014 at the age of 93.
Also Wednesday, the board will be briefed on an ongoing $3.1 million equestrian project that will include a 7,000-square foot clubhouse at the team’s facility in Bishop.
