So sad that you entirely missed the point! Mr. Olson is not trying to save a golf course, he is passionate about NOT spending public funds (over 7 million) for a vague concept that no one can explain. Why is it for every other change in land use an EIR and CEQA are required, but not in this case? He is correct, it doesn't pass the smell test. There has been an environment created there over the last 50 years which wildlife and humans have enjoyed, and there WILL be an impact to the environment when the water is turned off. A studied report would identify how much of an impact it will be, but none of the players in this scheme seem to care - they just want their $7 million public money. I don't know where you went to school, but I have never seen water run uphill, and when the golf course irrigation is turned off it will be a dry dust bowl. When the mice and gophers and squirrels and birds are gone because they have no water perhaps then humans will realize this was a bad idea. By then it will be too late.
