The City of Alameda has moved the next discussion relating to the Chuck Corica Golf Complex to its March 6, 2012 council meeting, according to a notice from Deputy City Manager Alex Nguyen.
Public opposition to proposal to the proposal to trade city-owned golf course land for a parcel in the Harbor Bay Business Park owned by Harbor Bay Isle Associates has been strong, with dozens of Alamedans and writing editor.
In November, Mayor Marie Gilmore made a formal request asking to the proposed land swap deal that would provide funds for the repair, upgrade, and ongoing maintenance of the golf complex.
, Alameda's City Council voted 5-0 to ask city staff to look at alternative sources of funding for the course.
The City has since issued a new Request for Proposals (RFP) for the operation and maintenance of the golf complex, as part of the options being formulated.
The RFP’s timeline has pushed the meeting date out to March 6, 2012, according to Nguyen.
