I like the idea of having the golf course also serve as recreational ski trails. The golf purists would turn in their graves. Buckthorn removal is a pet cause for me. As is preserving the oak trees.
Vote NO! on the Winter Rec Facility. Not in the plan. Why would the city council approve this. Don't need more taxes or another bond referendum. If X-country ski trails need rethinking, fine. But not a $3 million boondoggle proposed by some outside opportunistic huckster. Don't be swayed. VOTE NO!
I am sick to death of golf courses in Edina - 1 hole for every 1,000 residents. Golf course revenues do not meet expenses. Golfers are being supported by the taxpayers with funds better used elsewhere. City council continues to maintain and expand these expensive facilities.
With that said, I support a conservative and conservationist approach to "development" of the Braemar property.
