  1. Pro or con pickle ball (pro), as a matter of civic process, the Rec Commission is doing a great job of considering the options for pickleball in Piedmont. The Commission has agendized this issue several times and established a subcommittee to fact find. At the last Commission meeting the chair gave a verbal draft of the subcommittee report, extensively outlining what will likely be in the final report presented in January. This gives the public ample time to consider and prepare comments. Typically many city decisions appear just 72 hours before a final decision is made with no advance staff report for the public to consider.

  2. As a new pickleball player, I’ve been to more than several meetings advocating for the inclusion of pickleball in Piedmont. At times the Piedmont process seems overly robust. But Garrett highlights the positive nature of this process unlike some other short notice vital issues in town. Both opponents and proponents of pickleball are being given ample notice and opportunity to be heard.

    I again urge a Sunshine Government Act in Piedmont which will increase the 72 hour notice requirement of the Brown Act to 10 days.
