Construction Status

Basketball/Pickleball Court Improvement Project

  • Starting on March 3, 2020, a fencing contractor will be installing new fence at the basketball and pickleball courts.  The project is expected to take approximately one week.  The basketball and pickleball courts are off-limits during construction.  We are sorry for the inconvenience, however during construction the safety of the public and the workers is paramount.
  • The installation of the fence is the second phase of the three phase project.  Phase one was the installation of the new basketball posts and hoops and pickleball nets.  Phase two is the new fencing.  Later this spring, phase three will be the repair of the asphalt and installation of new sport surfacing and permanent pavement markings.

The City's MLK Athletic Field Improvement Project began on Saturday, November 3. The field is located on the City's MLK Campus at the north end of Sausalito. Major construction will be performed by Maggiora & Ghilotti, which was awarded a contract by the City Council on October 30 after a competitive bidding process. The total project cost is projected at $1,041,068, with primary funding coming from revenues received from the 2016 Certificates of Participation.

The project includes the following elements:

  • Removing existing trees
  • Stripping and stockpiling the field's existing topsoil for reuse
  • Regrading the field to improve drainage
  • Constructing new drainage facilities
  • Adding an asphalt path around the perimeter of the field, with a length of approximately ⅓ mile
  • Creating a soccer pitch, a softball field, and a concrete pad for an outdoor gym
  • Placing a new gate in the fence along Coloma Street to facilitate vehicle access when the field acts as a temporary parking lot for special events
  • Installing a new irrigation system
  • Planting new grass

During construction, the field will be fenced off to the public. If work proceeds without complications, the field will reopen for public use in summer 2019. 

Any questions about the MLK Athletic Field Improvement Project may be directed to Senior Civil Engineer Andrew Davidson at or (415) 289-4180.
