The idea is still present and I think the City of Independence is on board in theory, but the means to do so is currently at a stand still. The City of Independence wants a written confirmation from the Department of Natural Resources saying we can proceed. They feel it is necessary because the land is currently being monitored by the DNR since it is an old landfill in some areas. Since there will be digging in some areas we have to be sure it is approved in the area we would like to use. By our maps, it appears the area for the course was not used for the landfill.....I gather that DNR says it would be a good use of the land (to have a disc golf course) over the phone etc, but they have not yet put pen to paper....Once a letter is received we can reconvene with them. So, stay tuned is the best advice I can give at this point; the idea is still alive.
