The commission's approval of the concept doesn't mean the miniature golf proposal has the green light yet. According to a QC Times article, it gives staff the ability to investigate it further and allows the City Council and commission to identify necessary conditions in a lease.
The proposed 20,000 square-foot, ADA-accessible golf course would be located near Modern Woodmen. Like the Ferris wheel, the city would own the asset while the River Bandits would get revenues from its operations and would be responsible for its maintenance.
The Parks and Recreation advisory board has also scheduled a special meeting this week to discuss the riverfront miniature golf proposal.
