Letters to the Editor

Don’t throw good money after bad Glen Lakes Golf Course: It’s very apparent that the millions of dollars to refurbish and maintain a diminishing asset -- that the proposed development illustrated in The Glendale Star be adopted.  
As one whom appreciates green space as a member of The American Forestry Association and Arbor Day Foundation -- the dollars can be better spent on green spaces needed throughout the city, from parks void of trees to barren street thoroughfares.
As an example -- having resided in Glendale’s Barrel District 28 years this month, I have advocated lining the walkway of the East Sahuaro Ranch parking lot of drought tolerant trees to no avail. Yet there was funding for a chain link fence...go figure.
That said, with no disrespect to golfers, I highly support City Manager Kevin Phelps option three recommendation to sell and develop the property with provisions for green space.
