SUBJECT:

Request to approve the El Chorro Regional Park (including Dairy Creek Golf Course) Programming Plan and for direction regarding the use of supplemental water to irrigate the golf course. District 2.

RECOMMENDATION It is recommended that the Board: 1. Approve the El Chorro Regional Park Programming Plan. 2.

Provide direction to staff regarding the use of supplemental water to irrigate the golf course.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Faced with an uncertain future due to insufficient water to maintain a viable 18-hole golf course, Dairy Creek Golf Course was evaluated along with the entire El Chorro Regional Park for the opportunities to create a fiscally sustainable park operation that meets the community’s recreational needs within the available water allocation. County Parks contracted with Staples Golf Design to develop a Programming Plan for El Chorro Regional Park with additional input from RRM Design Group. The plan presents two fundamental options: one that has a minimum allocation of 160AF of water and retains the 18-hole course and another that has less than 160AF of water and reduces to a 9-hole course with a practice facility. Within each of those options, the implementation can be scaled to the precise amount of water that is allocated. The Board may direct staff to not seek any supplemental water. The Board may also direct staff to pursue supplemental water on either a long term basis or as an interim option while transitioning to a lower water use option and may specify the amount of supplemental water to receive. That direction will allow staff to pursue an implementation scenario consistent with the total anticipated water allocation. The intent is to implement revenue generating actions as quickly as feasible in order to reduce the amount of General Fund transfer that will be needed in subsequent years.
