As City Manager Kevin Phelps sees it, the process of selling Glen Lakes Golf Course is a straight shot to the hole: Take a failing golf business “the city never should have been involved in” and sell it to a developer for a cool $6.5 million.
All that’s left, in his mind, is an easy putt for Glendale City Council to approve a general plan amendment and rezoning request that would seal the deal.
But Save Glen Lakes, a group that has been fighting the sale for nearly a year, sees Phelps’ game as a twisting, dogleg course of action that is dodging neighbors’ cries to keep 40 acres of green space.
