if you call the city you'll be put on an interest list of people that will be involved w/ the planning..

i believe they're planning on putting it in at pottberg park, which is on blue springs lake, just east of lakewood

Find out exactly who's in charge

Find out exactly who's in charge, might end up being one person or a group of people.  Find out exactly what the city can and can't do ($ and manpower available for the new course).  Find out the boundaries of the proposed course and what you can or can't do to put the course in (remove or plant new trees, install cement teepads or not, etc.).  Find out what other things are being planned for the area (shelters, walking paths, restrooms, etc.).  Try and determine the best you can where the non-disc golf traffic may be in the new park (joggers, dog-walkers, etc.).  Bottom line is that it takes a lot of planning to put in a course.  You have to deal with people (politics) as well as the physical labor to get a course installed.  Utilize the resources of the club.  Later...
