Logan Mayor Craig Petersen had an updated Tuesday on the city’s progress toward what he called, “that emerging, blossoming sport of Pickleball.” The council had earlier gone along with a request from the mayor and Parks and Recreation Director Russ Akina to find some money to start construction of a court.
Petersen told councilmembers they got some help from the Cache County Council last week.
“We requested that we divert a part of the funding from one of our approved projects at Bridger Park for the funding of the Pickleball court,” Petersen told the council. “The county council actually thought it was a great idea. They were very, very supportive of that.
“So we have that money we can use towards it. We also have a group that will help fund it privately. Construction will start next Spring.”
The mayor said Logan City has been getting pressure from a wide range of age groups to get started on a Pickleball court.
