Construction activities at the Seward Park site:
The contractor will be on-site this Saturday, April 15, to lay the first coating for the new tennis courts. This work is weather-dependent, and the contractor wants to take advantage of the weather forecast. Work hours are expected to be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The new tennis courts will need several coatings and about 30 days to cure before they are open to the public later this spring.

The underground storage facilities are in the following locations:
