The issue of expansion of disc golf in Warner Park (WP) is once again before the City Commission on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. Many thought the issue dead after the Parks and Rec Advisory Board voted unanimously against it on Oct. 1.

The Mercury agreed with that decision in an editorial on Oct. 3 stating “Committee made the right decision on Warner Park.” Parks and Rec went ahead and presented a WP master plan to the City Commission on Nov. 27 with the expansion included.

At that meeting several commissioners expressed concerns and asked Parks and Rec to come up with some alternate locations. Unfortunately on Aug. 5 the planning staff went before the Advisory Board and said they were going to present WP again to the City Commission.

There is actually an excellent alternative to WP. It is the undeveloped Roger Schultz Community Park (RSCP). It will have better car and bicycle access, parking, amenities like bathrooms and a playground, minimal to no impact on the adjacent homeowners, and a varied terrain that has almost unlimited possibilities for a disc golf course.

Why was a professional course designer not sent to RSCP (like they did to WP) to present an alternate site like the commission requested? Please come to the meeting and have your voice heard.
