It's nice to see the city wanting to expand recreational opportunities in our community.
In our last community, our Homeowners Association had an elaborate pool and tennis complex. The swimming pool upkeep and maintenance was very expensive every year. Our problem was the expense of re-doing our four tennis courts every few years--courts used by a relatively few people. We had a difficult time cash flowing tennis court repairs even with 400 homeowners in the neighborhood.
I cannot imagine the upkeep, maintenance and costs of running a 31 tennis court complex. Does the City of Florence realize how much it's going to cost every year--on top of the initial cost of the project? Does the city have that much money for the enjoyment of relatively few citizens?
