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.
At the March 30 meeting, the Mayor and Council, paused further discussion about RedGate to develop a revised approach for planning and to allow a better understanding of the financial impact to the city of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Parkland uses could include passive activities, such as connected trails for biking, hiking and walking, pathways, areas for picnicking, open spaces and natural habitats, or active-use facilities, such as an arboretum, playgrounds or athletic areas.
Any planning for RedGate will focus heavily on engaging the community, offering numerous ways to provide input and feedback.
