Friends of Swenson/Save Swenson ~ Mission: By Suzie Bowers
SAVE, Protect, and Improve the Property known as Swenson Golf Course and Park for future generations.
After the City Council Meeting, December 4th, 2017 in which Stockton City Council shared their plans to sell Swenson Park Golf Course and Park for Low Income Housing Development, our group, Friends of Swenson was formed. We consider ourselves a family with our community. We are your neighbors and friends...many of us live here in the neighborhood or grew up in the neighborhood.
Friends of Swenson immediately discussed concepts of forming an assessment district to take over ownership and operation of the property and protect it forever from development or destruction. We reviewed the 70+ page document which was created and engineered and payed for by our City government ($40,000) outlining options for low income housing development of 600-900 units.
We looked at many options, asked for and received counsel, to be sure it was the best situation for all concerned and not to jump in and make the situation worse.
