Glendale wants residents’ input on how to repurpose a municipal nine-hole golf course the city shut down in March.
The city is hosting a town hall meeting for residents to share ideas about how to use the public land at 6 p.m. Monday, May 13 at Glendale Elementary School, 8530 N. 55th Ave. The meeting will be held in the school’s cafeteria. The meeting will be streamed live on the city’s Facebook page.
Residents can also email ideas and suggestions to GlenLakesIdeas@GlendaleAZ.com.
Specifically, the city is looking for input on planning for the open space portion of that land. Ideas for amenities such as benches, shade features and playground equipment on that portion are all welcome.
After months of deliberation, Glendale City Council voted to close city-owned Glen Lakes Golf Course, at 55th and Northern avenues, late November 2018. The course closed in late March. The course had become run-down and would have required millions of dollars in capital improvements to improve the course, restaurant and pro shop to an acceptable standard. Read more here.
