MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - A group of Mandan officials has been tasked with studying the future of six 50-year-old tennis courts that were last resurfaced in 1998.

The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1kaEztK ) reports that the Mandan Park Board has selected a committee to analyze what should be done with the space.

The board has previously discussed turning some of the space into a parking lot.

Park superintendent Mike Zerr says the courts are pitted up and cracked. He says they have “outlived their usefulness.”

Parks and recreation director Cole Higlin says the city needs to figure out what is needed in the area - parking spaces, two or six tennis courts or even a warming house for a skating rink.

Higlin says the cost of new courts ranges between $75,000 and $100,000 each.
