Feedback Fridays

By Brig. Gen. Caroline M. Miller 502d Air Base Wing Commander

Feedback Fridays is a weekly forum that aims to connect the 502d Air Base Wing with members of the Joint Base San Antonio community. Questions are collected during commander’s calls, town hall meetings and throughout the week.

If you have a question or concern, please send an email to jbsapublicaffairs@gmail.com using the subject line “Feedback Fridays.” Questions will be further researched and published as information becomes available.

Q. My question is about the JBSA-Randolph commissary parking lot. Are there any plans to redo the lot?

The lines are faded away causing people to park over the lines designated for wheelchair use in the handicap area. There are also potholes to maneuver around and it seems that it’s overdue to be looked at.

A. Thank you for submitting your concern about the JBSA-Randolph Commissary parking lot. 

Our 502nd Civil Engineer operations team, in coordination with commissary management, had scheduled parking lot repairs to begin on or around Jan. 26, 2021, depending on the weather.   

Work will consist of pothole repair and parking lot painting, which includes handicap spots.

Q. In October 2019, I inquired “The existing tennis courts on JBSA-Randolph H Street are in need of repair. This would be a great time to reconfigure them into a Pickle Ball court and move the practice wall from H Street to the courts on C Street.” 

Thank you for the practice wall at the C Street facility. I’ve notice players are using it. I’m not sure if the lines that were painted on the C Street courts were the start of a conversion or were completed but as they stand now they are useless. 

Are there any future plans to convert any courts to a complete Pickle Ball complex?  Thank you.

A.  Thank you for contacting us regarding your concern. Unfortunately, the tennis courts on H Street are closed due to safety hazards with the court surface.

Civil Engineering and base development have determined the courts will be demolished and the area will be repurposed.

On a positive note, the tennis courts on C Street will be maintained and kept serviceable. The Pickle Ball Court lines have been painted and the Rambler Fitness Center has purchased Pickle Ball equipment.

Please contact Marlin Richardson, Fitness Center Manager, for further information on equipment check out at 210-652-7263.
