Tony Fuentes, owner of Milagros, co-chairman of the Cully Neighborhood Association, and occasional Activistas contributor, was featured in the Tribune's 6.12.08 article about the situation around the golf course's potential change of use. Tony has explained the situation and called for action on Activistas before.
For now, we just wait until the city hears the industrial rezoning application later this summer. The question is: golf course = future industrial land or some other, more open space type use?? There are a number of powerful voices in the mix here, including neighborhood opponents who would very much like to see this land become a park and preserved habitat. And, given the size of the golf course, this could be a pretty significant in-city park, folks. Tired of driving to Oxbow and Blue Lake Regional Parks? Try Cully.
