Recreation News
Solar Panels & Roof Repair 
The PC MARC appreciates the patience and willingness of our patrons during the roof construction this past month. It has been challenging as the leaking roof has had a large impact on tennis and the track. The project seems to be back on track as they are currently installing 1,500 mounts for the solar panels. When the panels are up & running the city projects that it will save about 30% off of our current electric bill or about $33,000 a year.

Dog Park Agility
