The Project -- Alternative 5
River and Meadow Ecosystem Restoration / Decommissioned Golf Course
Alternative 5: River and Meadow Ecosystem Restoration / Decommissioned Golf Course This alternative would include the same river and floodplain treatment as Alternatives 2 and 3, but the golf course would be completely eliminated, although the buildings would remain. Future studies would be conducted to determine other potential uses of both park units. The area where the golf course is currently located would be restored to floodplain and meadow in stages.

This alternative would include the same river treatment as Alternatives 2 and 3, but the golf course would be eliminated. The area where the golf course is currently located would be restored.
In alternative 5:
-- River channel would be restored to a more natural balanced condition that improves geomorphic function and habitat;
-- All of the golf course holes would be removed, likely in phases;
-- The riparian/floodplain area where the golf course holes would be removed from the river corridor would be restored in the preliminary phase;
-- The five golf course bridges that cross the river would be removed;
-- Both park units (LVSRA and WMSP) would be studied for future recreational uses;
--No changes to recreation trails would be made until studies completed.
