Secret Ordinance to Impact Community Golf Course - June 6 Meeting

Please be advised that the agenda for the City of Evanston's Human Services Committee meeting of June 6, 2011, to be held at the Civic Center at 7:00 pm will include a most important introduction of a proposed new ordinance that will impact the future of one of the great treasures of the Central St area - The Frank Govern Memorial Golf Course.  You may also remember it as Peter Jans, or even more affectionately as canal shores.
The not-for-profit community course has only been around since 1919, providing relaxed golf and passive recreation pleasure to many generations of Evanstonians, young and old.
It is unclear what is included in this ordinance because the City and our elected representatives have chosen to keep the contents and intent of the ordinance a secret for several weeks now, despite attempts by several of our neighbors to obtain more specific information. So much for transparency.
Set aside an hour or two from your schedule and plan to attend this meeting on Monday evening!



The start time for the City's Human Services Committee meeting scheduled for Monday June 3 has been changed to 7:30 pm, for those who are planning to attend.

Text of the ordinance was in the 6/2 City packet. See new post above.
