PLAZA RC NEWS UPDATE as of February 18, 2016

0 February 28, 2016 by

At their 6 pm March 2 meeting, the Palm Springs City Council will provide a status update on The Plaza Racquet Club.  We are expecting a report on locations they are studying/considering for the club.

Letters to the Desert Sun and/or the City Council are still appreciated.  Possible points to include in your writing:

  • Thank the Council and the Parks and Rec Commission for their efforts on behalf of the club and all its visitors (residents and tourists alike)
  • Encourage their help in allowing the club to remain open while the new property owners are moving through the planning and permitting process.
  • Encourage them to utilize the Haggstroms’ expertise and knowledge as they study location and siting options.

Where we are as of this point in time

  • The Parks and Rec Commission has appointed an ad hoc group to work with the City Councils’ subcommittee (Mayor Moon and Councilman Mills)
  • We are working along parallel tracks: 1) looking at viable alternative locations and 2) working with both the City and the Province Group to encourage a new lease allowing the club to continue operations during the planning and permitting process
  • Ruth Hardy Park continues to be the leading option though we have said we have one chance to do this right so let’s look at other possible ideas.
  • Progress is slow but the wheels are still turning!

Health Reminder

Don’t forget, before & after you play, stretch your various muscle groups to help avoid injuries and accelerate the recovery process.  In addition, don’t forget to hydrate at least two hours prior to your matches.  And even though our season temperatures are moderate, the sun’s rays are still damaging to your skin. Apply sunscreen liberally throughout the day.
