A plan to halve the Hiawatha Golf Course into nine holes seemed to pass on a Minneapolis Park Board vote last week, but an amendment killed the master plan for the land, at least for now.
Plus: There was an amendment to the resolution to rename the clubhouse after Solomon Hughes, who integrated the course. That amendment passed.
- Yes, but: Immediately after the vote, Commissioner Brad Bourn, who abstained, jumped in and said a name change to park property requires six votes.
- Since the overall resolution only got four votes, the whole redesign plan failed.
What to watch: Park Board Commissioner Chris Meyer wrote in an email to Nick that "one way or another we will bring the plan back for a vote after the Chauvin trial concludes."
- Meyer said that could come in the form of a slightly different resolution.
Bourn told Axios the naming rule is a basic one and he assumed the commissioners knew what they were doing.
