(Granted, a lot of the public has no idea what DG even is; they might hear "golf" and think we want to do clear-cutting of 400-yard fairways.)
My comment needed clarification then. I was referring to what Michelle had said reactions were regarding DG being looked at by the decision makers in the Parks & Rec department, which she said was positive. It should go without saying that the average constituent is either indifferent or against disc golf due to lack of awareness/understanding or a preference to see no improvements to the park at all.
