Letter: Save South Jordan’s Mulligan’s
First Published May 30 2014 05:53 pm • Last Updated May 30 2014 06:18 pm

Perhaps you’ve heard about South Jordan’s Mayor David Alvord’s desire to destroy the beautiful green space of the popular South Jordan landmark, Mulligan’s Golf and Games.

Located along the Jordan River, Mulligan’s has the best of both worlds — the entertainment of a nine-hole golf course, batting cages and heated driving range that attract more than 250,000 patrons a year, as well as part of the scarcity of open space along a protected river that brings migratory birds and other rare wildlife seldom seen in a city.

It seems the greed of our city leaders who would choose to add more high-density housing, commercial development and, in particular, Hale Center Theatre, over saving a family-oriented outdoor facility in what looks like the Garden of Eden knows no bounds.

Citizens who have flocked to city council meetings and made posts on the mayor’s Facebook page requesting that the future of Mulligan’s be put to a vote of the people have been blatantly ignored. Isn’t it time for the city council to hear the citizens and see more than dollar signs?

If South Jordan wants Hale, locate it on a different plot of land. Some things are more important than money!
