We’ve had fine summer weather in April, but Albany’s new complex of pickleball courts at Linn-Benton Community College remains closed for two reasons. One, the courts are still not quite finished. And two — what else? — Covid.
Close neighbors told the Albany City Council Wednesday how much little Hazelwood Park means to them, so much so that they have taken to trimming the grass and keeping ivy from climbing the trees. Half an hour later the council voted 5-1 to put the park up for sale.
Should the public be allowed to use the new pickleball courts at Linn-Benton Community College in Albany during the Covid era? That question has become moot for now because the courts won’t be finished this year.
