<br /> Council Members:
<br /> Why is P&R planning a $17 million "Center" on Stafford Road with no mass transport available? This and a$3 million golf course redo for two
<br /> thirds of the $30 million bond!
<br /> Use the existing golf course building for administrative offices and the North Anchor Block for aerobics, gym, classroom space, etc. The
<br /> building would be centrally located for all to enjoy with very easy access! Classes and other activities, right downtown close to restaurants etc.
<br /> Recent outreach results can be seen on the city web site:
<br /> //www.ci.oswego.or.us/parksrec/bond-investment-outreach
<br /> There were several comments concerning location. No one thinks putting the Rec Center on the edge of town is a good idea
<br /> "... PLEASE put it in a central location,NOT at the Golf Course! ..."
<br /> ... put classes where everyone can get to them. Not in a remote location."
<br /> "The golf course with some improvements... works well for the community as is and has been called a gem by many. ...it should not be changed to a
<br /> nine-hole course. ...P&R Facility would be better placed in another location. ...not had one person I have talked with ... wants to change the golf
<br /> course, so listen to the people who use the course."
<br /> "If you do build a new recreation center please locate it in a central location so all residents can enjoy it,NOT by the golf course... ...when classes
<br /> were at Palisades very few people attended; now that they are at the adult community center and Christ Church my classes are full; LOCATION,
<br /> LOCATION, LOCATION"
<br /> Spend our bond money wisely. Leave the golf course as is and put any Center in a central location not on the edge of town!
