Reader's view: Don’t sell off a beautiful local resource
Duluth Minnesota 424 W. First St. 55802

The Duluth City Council deciding to close Lester Park Golf Course would be something like Congress selling off one of our national parks. A beautiful resource would be lost forever. The east end of Duluth would lose its only public golf course, which also includes a popular summer youth program (“City ponders golf course changes, including possible Lester Park sale,” June 11).

In years to come the citizens of a growing Duluth may look back in sadness and bewilderment at such a decision. So come on, City Council members, getting rid of Lester Park Golf Course is a really bad idea. There are solutions out there. Explore them; use them.
