A new sports court at Silver City Townhomes is now available for the community to use. The townhomes and sports court recently celebrated their grand opening. Construction of 20 rent-to-own townhomes, located at 3507 W. Pierce St., took slightly less than a year. The three- and four-bedroom homes are energy efficient, and topped off by a “green roof,” which will absorb about 200,000 gallons of water each year. The sports court features six basketball hoops and one full-size tennis court.
