Mayor Leo Zuber presented a proclamation Tuesday to Di Quaresma of the Love-Love Ripon Foundation in honor of National Tennis Month by the US Tennis Association. USTA is a partner with local tennis programs, including Love-Love Ripon Foundation..

The Ripon Planning Commission will meet Monday to discuss and approve the site plan permit on the 12-court tennis complex planned for the Mistlin Sports Park.

The project is anticipated to be constructed in multiple phases, according to the Planning Director Ken Zuidervaart in his staff report.

The 6 p.m. session will take place in the Council Chambers, 259 N. Wilma Ave.

The City of Ripon and Love-Love Ripon, a local nonprofit spearheaded by Di Quaresma, have been working together on this project.

The main objective for Love-Love Rion is to elevate tennis by bringing in the new courts, ensuring the opportunity for everyone to learn and play the sport, develop skills and offer USTA tournament while making Ripon the epicenter for tennis.

Zuidervaart noted that he’s anticipating Phase 1 to include six initial tennis courts equipped with the associated lighting and fencing, located at 1210 E. Clinton South Ave.

Phase 2 would consist of the remaining six tennis courts coupled with a restroom facility and a 194-stall parking lot with lighting.

As part of the project, all existing structures on the 5.63-acre site would be demolished.
