I am all for ensuring fair market value is paid, not sure if there are other leases for non-golf course uses that could be used to compare. It's a very weird take suggesting the course be opened up for an event like this. Would indeed do some serious damage to the course.

Curious how city admin and the club came to this number. It looks like they were prepaid the full amount of the extension if I understand correctly? I have always thought we have more river valley space than the city itself can afford to manage/maintain but doesn't necessarily mean we should be giving it away for peanuts. Like said above there are factors like taxes, jobs, public use (cross country skiing), & events (golf tournaments) that all enter the equation I suppose.

I don't have enough knowledge to have a strong opinion on the matter. I think it's a lot about nothing because 1- we should be endeavoring not to be closing Hawrelak for the better part of 2-3 years and 2 - There are many other suitable alternatives for festivals like Heritage days.
 

Gronk!

I hope sidewalks are installed at the main entrance during this rehab
