Page 122 is where the disc golf starts......some concerns are valid, some are not, but it is their land. They made the choice.
As you can tell from the previous comments, here is a follow up from teh P&R of Lees Summitt. We need to have you that live in teh area and are in support to attend this meeting please. The lack of people in attendance for the Pottberg Park was not the issue, it was simply the homeowners not wanting to expand their nesting communtiy to disc golfers. Change is hard for many to come by. Lets ee what we can build from here.
As you can probably gather, we have scrapped plans for disc golf at
Pottberg Park. There was too much voiced opposition to using the park
for disc golf. We still believe there is strong support for a course in
Lee's Summit so we are looking for feasible sites. The shelter venue at
the park has much more parking accessible and also restrooms in place.
As for invitees, please extend the invitation to your club. We would
particularly like to see support from club members in this area of the
metro. Our park board is very supportive of building a course and will
be a priority for them to review in the next fiscal budget which will
start to commence early in '08.

Do you want this open to all excited about the disc golf possibility, or
just members of the board from our group?
Please advise. I also have a fellow Kiwani member that lives in the
area that is in support of disc golf, Roger Kelly. I will work on
making sure that he is in attendance if his schedule permits.
Like ball golf, only faster,
cheaper, and healthier!"
-------------- Original message from "Steve Casey"
Lee's Summit Parks and Recreation would like to invite you to
attend a work session to discuss plans for a disc golf course at Legacy
Park. The meeting will be held at the large park shelter at Legacy Park
on Monday evening October 22nd at 5:30pm (weather permitting). If
weather prohibits us from meeting on site, we will move the meeting to
the City Hall Parks offices. The focus of the meeting will be to review
and discuss the feasibility of developing a course on existing park
property and review conceptual layout plans. We hope you can attend.
Directions to the Legacy Park Shelters:
Take Colbern Road east to Blackwell Parkway. Turn south on
Blackwell to Coneflower Rd. (Coneflower is first left). Take
Coneflower east to the shelter parking area.
