It's decision is out of our hands now sir...too bad the KK's didn't make it

Walk thrus coming up with the park folks...us and them...both sides taking notes on everything that needs done on all 3 courses., entry ways, park roads, maps, ammenities, promo & all the 1000 other things that need done!

Each side will pick and choose tasks they can best accomplish and we will go from there.

Recon maybe Tuesday or Wednesday of next week if anybody can make it...your voice would be heard!

Quite unexpectedly, the Clay County Commissioners have tabled the approval until the next meeting...in two weeks.  :(

I think we are still good…the money is in the budget for the 60 baskets…it’s just that one of them had some questions  and rather than risk losing the vote, the Park Director suggested to push it until the next meeting. He will now spend some more one on one time what that Commissioner to make sure all her questions have been answered to her satisfaction.

I am told it happens all the time in the county government process…it’s just that we are running out of construction time and now I am getting frustrated with the process.  >:(

Oh well….what’s two more weeks when I got a good couple of years getting this thing this far. I am gonna be quiet until we clear the next step…don’t let that freak anybody out!  ;)

I would be very concerned, and be extremely pro-active with the nay-sayer.  Do not let the park people answer the questions, bring in the people that know the sport and can answer the information for them prior to the next meeting.  Do not wait.  Get energetic with all the board members.  Send them the proposal and the powerpoint presentations that you shuold have prepared for this event.  ASk them follow up questions to drive home the desire within the area, and most importantly the new additinoal revenue stream that this can produce with relatively minimal impact to the surrounding amenities.

Be sure to maximize the cost of the entire installation is generally going to be a fraction of the cost of a playground area and cover a large section of the underused portions of the park.  The ROI on the project will clearly be a significant draw, and hopefully you haev already extrapolated numbers for them over a 3-7 year time span.

Get in front of this, or it could kill it.

We were all told that Pottberg Park was a done deal as well, with baskets ordered, and welll..........no there is a course in Laegacy.......

We, kind sirs are NO POTTBERG PARK...that deal was dooomed right from the start.

With 85 acres to play with, I purposely suggested we stay acres and acres from the Harborview Neighborhood. One designer did and one got a wee bit boarder-bound and had a couple shots getting a little too close for my comfort. Deal breaker--NO. Made me concerned for liability and neighborhood issues- HELL YES! Kinda a no brainer  there.

I live here gents...and believe me...I know the process well. This Park Director is one of the most highly respected dudes in the business. I do believe he knows what he is doing. He wants this just as bad as we do.

Relax boys and girls...I WE ARE ALL OVER IT!!!!
