BENNETT VALLEY GOLF COURSE
A current issue that is garnering a great deal of interest and controversy is the use of the Bennett Valley Golf Course. The city council is studying the best use of the golf course given the fact that there is a considerable issue because of the debt in relation to the restaurant (currently closed). There is discussion regarding other uses for the golf course along with possibilities for using some of the land for affordable housing. There is also a proposal to spend $150,000 for a 90-day study to investigate multiple options for the future of the golf course.
