P.O.M.A.P. has received information from Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District of a NOTICE OF NEIGHBORHOOD FORUM in regards to Greenway DGC the letter received reads as follows......
NOTICE OF NEIGHBORHOOD FORUM
GREENWAY PARK DISC GOLF COURSE
WEDNESDAY, MAY 27, 2009 - 7-9 P.M.
Conestoga Recreation and Aquatic Center
The Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District has received feedback from neighbors and residents using Greenway Park, regarding disc golf and how it fits in with other park activities.
Since it's opening in spring 2007, the disc golf course has generated many positive comments from local residents. But we've also heard from park users who are concerned about safety. They've pointed out conflicts between the disc golf course and the natural areas and walking paths. In addition, we have received a petition asking that the course be removed - an action that was opposed by other local residents and park users.
Whatever your ideas or opinions may be, please join the staff of the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District for a neighborhood forum on this topic. It will be held Wednesday, May 27, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Conestoga Recreation and Aquatic Center, Room 203.
The purpose of the forum is to bring the wide variety of Greenway Park users together to discuss these differences of opinion. Through an open exchange of ideas we hope to find a solution that is agreeable to everyone. In the end, our primary goal is to maintain Greenway Park as an open, inviting, multipurpose community park that everyone can enjoy.
THPRD staff from a variety of departments will be in attendance to provide information, answer questions, and facilitate the forum.
