If adopting the much-needed Hiawatha Golf Course Master Plan were a round of golf, some of the park board commissioners would get a penalty for slow play. The master plan addresses the current challenges: the land's low topography, a wetter climate due to climate change, declining interest in golf (compared to increased interest in other outdoor recreation), and a stormwater system that dumps often toxic trash into beautiful Lake Hiawatha. The master plan is a sustainable, well-thought out solution, developed with years of community input, that works to restore and conserve the natural landscape.
We do not need an alternative plan that further disturbs the land. It's been too many years with more trash and no action. Please, park board, stop this egregiously slow play and move the master plan forward.
