  4. Bathroom and new shop project is on hold at this time.

Golf driving range. Greg Conley, and his father, Chuck, presented a suggestion for a golf driving range. They had past experience in this area and felt it could provide income for the park if it could be built. A lease with revenue sharing was suggested. A short discussion was had in regards to the possible site and how it might impact the park. They have been invited back to offer more information in the future. In the event that a project of this type would be approved, it was estimated that it would take one year to complete. A point was made that it could cause some parking problems as well as park entry and exit problems if put in one of the areas suggested

Concession trailer. A small trailer that would be in the park that would have various types of sports equipment available. Not certain whether this equipment is rental or not. Contact Anne for more information on this as well as on the Disney Tunes.
