Reply from the Mayor

Dear Richard and Ronald,

Thank you for your message. In a city as large as ours, we must keep
our established neighborhoods and green spaces intact. I see many pros
to having schools in this area, but I believe they are outweighed by the
hundreds of residents that call this area home. I have attempted to
speak with developers that would continue to operate the golf course,
but the asking price has been prohibitive to them. I hope we can find
such an operator, but it will be very difficult. The city,
unfortunately, does not have the financial resources to acquire the golf

I encourage you to speak at the town hall meetings that will be
scheduled in July. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy your Summer.
