Decatur residents react on local golf course closing


People living near Decatur's Nelson Park are trying to figure out how the decision to close the park's golf course will effect their livelihood.

Late last week the Decatur Park District voted unanimously to close the golf course, after a market analysis report showed the city had too many courses for the population.

Nelson park residents say as a result they fear their property value will decline and now they want to know what will replace the golf course.

Members of the Nelson Park neighborhood watch group plan to meet with the Decatur Park District members Tuesday to discuss their options.
