GVR unveiled the final design for its 24-court Pickleball Center on Thursday, with a much higher price tag than when first discussed four years ago.
The next step is finding $2.2 million to fund the new facility, which is 59 percent more than WSM Architects’ original 2014 estimate.
Following the presentation, the GVR Planning and Evaluations Committee agreed to send the plan to the Board of Directors and the Fiscal Affairs Committee.
The board will decide whether to direct WSM to send the development plan to Pima County for permitting; Fiscal Affairs will determine how to fund the project in its current iteration.
The permitting process will cost $2,500, according to GVR documents. It will take the county six to eight weeks to respond to GVR’s development proposal.
WSM hopes to break ground for the new center in April and complete the project next December.
