Dispute Pits Tennis Club Vs. Nelson Museum
Not available online
TitleDispute Pits Tennis Club Vs. Nelson Museum
AbstractThere is tension between the Rockhill neighborhood and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art concerning the fate of the Rockhill Tennis Club. The museum trustees own the tennis club at 46th Street and Rockhill Road which started in 1915, and they want to rehab the building and use it for office space. Some of the residents of the Rockhill and Southmoreland neighborhoods want to keep the tennis club open. The City Council has gotten involved, and it is hoped that a beneficial resolution will happen before the lease runs up on December 31, 2009.
