On 20 January 2020, Council received a petition from a number of Redlynch residents, requesting the installation of a half basketball court at Salli and John Mitchell Park.  This petition was presented at Council’s Ordinary Meeting on 26 February 2020 and it was resolved:

1. That Council notes that officers had previously proposed a basketball half court in this locale and therefore supports the petition’s request for this to be reconsidered; and
2. Subject to consultation with adjoining neighbours that this now be incorporated into the rolling parks infrastructure program.

Salli and John Mitchell Park is accessed by two street frontages: corner of Jungara Road and Elkhorn Close and off Eucalyptus Drive.

The petition did not nominate a preferred location for the half court.  Given the uneven landforms at the site, it is considered that the most suitable location for a half court would be on the flat section between Eucalyptus Street and the drain in the park.

Feedback on this project has now closed.
