Community Forum Held On Future Of Park Hill Golf Club


WHAT LANGUAGE YOU SPEAK. THERE WAS AN OPEN COMMUNITY FORM ABOUT WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN WITH THE PARK HILL GOLF COURSE BECAUSE THE LEASE IS ALMOST UP. LAST YEAR THE CITY CONSIDERED BUYING IT FOR MORE THAN $20 MILLION BUT THAT DEAL FELL THROUGH. RIGHT NOW THE GOLF COURSE IS OWNED BY CLAYTON TRUST AND SHE NEEDS $1 MILLION PER YEAR IN REVENUE FROM THE OPERATION OR $24 MILLION FOR THE LAND ITSELF. SOME SAY THE GOLF COURSE IS NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER BEFORE. WE HAVE A ONCE-IN-A- LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY OR ONCE IN A CENTURY OPPORTUNITY TO PRESERVE AND IMPORTANT PIECE OF OPEN SPACE, 155 ACRES, IN A PART OF TOWN THAT DOES NEED GREEN SPACE. WE ARE TRYING TO STRIKE THE RIGHT BALANCE BETWEEN THE INCOME THAT THE CLAYTON TRUST MUST GENERATE IN ORDER TO SERVE THE CHILDREN WHO ARE FACING DISADVANTAGES AND LIMITED OPPORTUNITIES IN OUR DENVER COMMUNITY WHILE ALSO SEEING HOW WE CAN COLLECTIVELY DO WITH THIS LAND THAT WILL SERVE THE NEEDS OF EVERYONE.
