Learn more about potential improvements to the Glendoveer Golf Course and Fitness Trail at a community open house. The goal of the Glendoveer facility assessment and business plan project is to evaluate current property conditions and identify opportunities to enhance the overall golf experience, to better serve the surrounding community and to maintain or improve revenue generation. While some site improvements or changes may take place as a result of this project, the golf course and fitness trail will continue to be a focus at Glendoveer. The outcome of the project will help guide a fair and competitive process to develop and award a new contract to operate the facility in 2013.

Meet at the Glendoveer fitness trail parking lot, located on Northeast 148th Avenue and Halsey Street. Metro Councilors and staff will be there to listen to your ideas and concerns, answer questions and provide information about next steps. For more information about the project and open house, go to www.oregonmetro.gov/glendoveer or contact Lydia Neill at 503-797-1830 or lydia.neill@oregonmetro.gov.
