Senior projects planner Karla Boughton provided an update at the City Council meeting Dec. 14. She said the result of the discussions with KPFD, along with the city’s unsuccessful attempt to acquire an additional nine acres of adjacent property, was to reorganize the PERC into phases and refine its approach.

  • Phase 1 would include two turfed and lighted tournament fields, with outdoor amenities such as basketball and pickleball courts, picnic shelters, Pacific Northwest-inspired playground, seating along walking paths and concession stands for sports tournaments, documents say.
