The County Department of Parks and Recreation invites you to attend an informational workshop on Monday, August 22 at 6 p.m. at Dairy Creek’s Clubhouse, 2990 Dairy Creek Rd, San Luis Obispo, CA. Staff is seeking pubic input to help determine plans that will impact the future of El Chorro Regional Park.
The lack of water at Dairy Creek Golf Course has negatively impacted the golf business operations. Parks staff will need to change the current golf operations to create a sustainable business model. This situation also provides an opportunity to examine the possibilities and options throughout El Chorro Regional Park, which includes Dairy Creek Golf Course, SLO Botanical Gardens, a dog park, ball fields, trails, open space, and recreation areas.
In May, the County Board of Supervisors directed staff to explore long-term plans for the site in light of reduced water availability, including the possibilities of a campground and special event space. Park staff will return to the Board on September 27 with the results of the input from the public and recommendations for the future of the park. This meeting will provide an overview of the current status of Dairy Creek Golf Course and some ideas of how the golf course could become more integrated with the park, creating more opportunities for both golfers and park users. This is an opportunity for all members of our County, not just golfers, to provide input that will be considered as part of this next step.
If you have suggestions or input on the future use of the community park, but can’t attend the meeting on Aug. 22, please contact County Golf Superintendent Josh Heptig at firstname.lastname@example.org.
