Having seen several articles about he disk golf course being installed at Zobel Park, I have several questions...

Who is in charge of this project and which county department are they working with? What type of planning was done and who approved the layout? Why did the plans need to be for 18 holes rather than starting with nine holes to see if it is used?

They have destroyed most of the prairie areas and they are now being mowed; this has at least doubled the size of the lawn that needs to be cut by the county.

Who is going to maintain all this additional area? ...

They have removed most of the prairie areas, graded up areas in the woods and removed shrub and natural growth brush, leaving large piles of dirt and branches and dried brush up against trees. ...

Why are the doors for the bathrooms boarded shut? Who asked to have paved walkways? We like the natural aspect of the park, that’s why we use it, if we wanted to walk on paved surfaces, we’d stay in town.

It appears that the people doing the work on the disk golf course are only concerned with getting the course set up and usable. ...
