Planning Projects

Littleton Golf and Tennis Clubhouse Replacement
South Suburban is investigating the replacement of the Littleton Golf and Tennis Clubhouse. Constructed in 1985, the 36-year old structure consists of a 45,000 square foot air-supported structure with an attached 1,500 square foot clubhouse. The intent is to replace existing air-structure and clubhouse with a pre-engineered metal building. No uses within the building or on-site are proposed to change. The six indoor tennis courts will remain in the current configuration. The clubhouse will be reoriented and minimally increased in size to enlarge the kitchen and bar area, improve circulation and layout, and provide an outdoor seating area.

Anticipated Construction Dates: On-site work will begin in the second quarter of 2022.

TrailMark Park Playground Replacement Project
South Suburban Parks and Recreation invites you to provide input on the playground replacement project at TrailMark Park. The original playground was installed in 1999 and needs replacement due to age and condition. The proposed improvements include new playground equipment, upgrading the playground surface with poured-in-play safety surfacing, replacing the existing park benches and picnic tables, and improving existing concrete walkways.
Residents can provide input through this survey. What type of playground equipment would you like to see? More information and examples are provided on South Suburban's Public Input page. Comments will be accepted through May 31, 2022. 
South Suburban understands there may be the desire for additional park and recreational amenities within the TrailMark Community. This will be addressed in a separate survey that will be released in June.
