          Who said it wasn't? I'm much happier to hear about Mt. Hood C.C. than Stewart. But I'm still hoping for something LESS than half an hour from my house....

            I'm pretty inspired by what I saw today. The options are just endless. BUT, get your machetes sharpened up and your clippers out. There will be a lot of blackberry cutting and brush/tree trimming. We weren't able to walk the whole thing because of blackberries blocking the "fairway". My next visit will be with machete in hand.

                We are getting ready to meet with the City of Troutdale to talk about the parking lot. This could be the biggest obstacle to getting the course installed.

                    It is my understanding that with the addition of a parking lot some city planning or traffic studies etc will have to take place.

                      Why not propose something to the college about a parking permit for the course kind of like the state park pass then the college could use the money back into the course.

                        Mostly because the course will not start and/or end right next to any of the existing parking lots and the school doesn't want to use the student/teacher parking lots for non-school parking.

                        When you look at the cost of installing a disc golf course, you aren't talking about that much money. But to put in a paved parking lot would cost more than the amount we would use to buy/install the baskets and 'build' the course.

                        Then there is the 'sexy' factor. When asked to give money to sponsor a basket on a new course you're more likely to get a yes; does that fly as well when you need to ask for money to build a parking lot for said course?

                        I was hoping that a glorified 'wide spot in the road' approach would work best, but we are probably looking at a major development. A paved parking lot on the corner of Troutdale Rd & CochranRd/Sweetbriar Rd may be the solution.

                          That is what I was afraid of about the parking i also was wondering about the parking lot by the Dairy Queen there is alot of unused parking on that side side of the road also a good oppurtunity for a disc shack you know instead of coffee drive thru discs.

                              If you make a parking lot for a business and not many people park there, you are not very likely to view it as 'unused parking' but as YOUR parking. And the last thing people want is people parking in THEIR parking if you are not patronizing their business.

                                I agree about not using the parking directly in front of the businesses but being a local of the area I know that alot of the lot goes unused 90% of the time. I also believe that if enough foot traffic is going by these businesses they might even see people stop in and spend some money something to look into before another parking lot has to be built I believe that is where most overflow parking would go anyways.
