What's Up With Hancock Golf Course? Good Question.
Parks and Rec considers turning golf course into parkland
Indeed, as "community engagement" goes, this whole process has gotten off to a rocky start, raising the hackles of the neighbors and the board, before it even gets started. But, contacted Wednesday afternoon, PARD's Kevin Gomillion stressed that the department is still very early in the process, gathering information on what neighbors' interests and concerns are, and that there will be opportunities for true public input soon after the Tuesday meeting. Concerning the most urgent public worry, he noted that the department has identified this area as having a shortage of parkland, and said that whatever happens to the golf course, PARD envisions no scenario that includes anything but parkland use for the tract.
