At the upcoming Lee County Board of County Commissioners meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 16 there are two items relating to Gasparilla Island on the agenda.

The meeting will consider a “supplemental task authorization” to a contract with AIM Engineering & Surveying Inc. to provide design, engineering and construction administration services to renovate the tennis courts and restrooms at Wheeler Road Community Park in the amount of $209,916.00.

The project includes demolishing the existing tennis courts to construct four pickleball courts and one tennis court, as well as parking spaces, a chain-link fence, shade structures and a larger restroom. A sidewalk will also be added along the inside of the Boca Grande Dog Park.

The Commissioners will also consider a lease agreement which allows the Friends of Boca Grande Community Center the exclusive use of office space at the Boca Grande Community Center. The agreement is for a period of ten years ending January 31, 2034, with an option to renew for two additional five-year terms.

The lease rate is $1 per year.
