The City of Largo has invited a Technical Assistance Panel to evaluate options for the future use of the Largo Municipal Golf Course. Urban Land Institute (ULI) professionals will explore the built and natural environment of the area and meet with stakeholders to develop realistic recommendations that align with the community's vision and needs. It is important to note, the future of the course is not yet determined. The panel's recommendations and community input will be presented at a Commission Work Session on Tuesday, March 9, 2021 (4pm) and further evaluated by City leaders to consider all possibilities carefully. Learn ways to attend, watch, and participate in the Commission Worksession at Largo.com/CityMeeting.
The 18-hole Largo Municipal Golf Course was purchased by the City in 1979 and subsequently reconstructed in 2007. Within the next 5-10 years, the course will require significant investments that are currently unfunded. In good stewardship of tax dollars, the City must plan for the future to ensure superior service delivery that meets community needs.
WHO IS ULI?
Urban Land Institute (ULI) is a nonprofit research and education organization that focuses on issues of land use, real estate, and urban development. The Technical Assistance Panel will be a group of diverse professionals representing the full spectrum of land use disciplines that have volunteered to provide an external perspective.
Community outreach began in the winter of 2019 and ran through the summer of 2020. This outreach included customers of the course as well as residents, businesses, and visitors of Largo. The panel will take place in March 2021 and report findings and recommendations at the Commission Work Session on Tuesday, March 9, 2020 at 4pm. This meeting will be open to public comment and can be accessed at Largo.com/LiveTV or viewed on the following channels: Spectrum Cable (ch. 639), W.O.W. Cable (ch. 15), or Frontier Cable (ch. 45). Learn ways to attend, watch, and participate in the Commission Worksession at Largo.com/CityMeeting.
