RedGate

RedGate is a 131-acre property that operated as a municipal golf course for 45 years.

On June 17, 2019, the Mayor and Council voted to discontinue using the property for golf based on a report by the National Golf Foundation concluding that RedGate could only survive as a viable golf course if significant repairs and renovations, estimated at $3.2 million, were made to the 18-hole course. Even then, according to the report, the course would only be returned to minimally acceptable levels.

On February 3, 2020, the Mayor and Council discussed the option of hiring a multi-disciplinary consultant team to engage the community and provide technical expertise to prepare conceptual options for the future of the property.

The Mayor and Council have emphasized the vast majority of RedGate should remain a park and also requested consideration for specific types of housing, in particular supportive housing for veterans and those with special needs.

Next Steps

Staff is developing a scope of work for a consultant to create a master plan for RedGate. The master plan will be the long-term vision for the former municipal golf course and the planning process will include significant input from the public.

The draft scope of work will be presented at the Mayor and Council meeting, tentatively schedule for March, and the community is invited to comment during community forum.
