Golf Course for Alton Baker Park <br /> Peter Thurston, County staff, said there has been discussion of developing a <br /> public golf course in Alton Baker Park since the 1960s. In 1988 Lane County <br /> contracted with ECO Northwest to evaluate the feasibility of developing a <br /> golf course at Alton Baker Park. The company studied several issues <br /> surrounding the development of a golf course in the park, including economic <br /> development questions related to the marketability of the site, possible <br /> tourism generated, how the golf course would improve the look of Eugene from <br /> the freeway, job creation, multiple uses of an old landfill site, and public <br /> sa fety . Other major questions were whether a golf course would fit on the <br /> site and how to deal with existing uses. <br /> e MINUTES--Eugene City Council November 30, 1988 Page 1 <br />
