May 18 public meeting preview

Since the April 20 public meeting, staff and consultants have further evaluated options for water management and use of the Hiawatha Golf Course property. The range of options has been narrowed to two directions—one that maintains the current volume of pumping and retains the 18 hole golf course and one that reduces the volume of pumping while introducing other recreation activities to the property. Potential activities in a reduced pumping scenario draw upon input offered by participants at the April 20 meeting. A more detailed description of each option, including ecological, recreational, economic, and other factors will be shared at a public meeting to be held on May 18.
