Thank you for your coverage of the Palm Springs City Council candidates. I would love to see where they stand on the issue of selling the Tahquitz Creek Golf Resort. On 9/24/2020 the City Council approved spending $14k for an appraisal of the golf course in order to consider a proposal that was made to the city to buy the golf course. The sale would result in the property no longer being available for golf. All of this is in the staff report that is available on the city website, except for the proposal itself (which voters should be able to see). The impact on homes bordering the golf course is unclear. The decision to sell the course and not have golf available there any more is a tremendous one for many city residents and visitors, as is the future use of the land. Could you please solicit the candidate's views on this topic? Thank you very much.
