Renovations to the Hilo Municipal Golf Course will be the subject of a public meeting later this month.
The county Department of Parks and Recreation said the meeting is being held to explain the project’s scope and gather public input.
It is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 22, at the Hawaii County Council chambers on Aupuni Street.
Aging buildings at the Hilo Muni suffer from termite damage and other problems. The back side of the restaurant is shown.
The proposed project includes replacement of the pro shop, restaurant and two on-course bathrooms, and reconstruction of four greens. It will also involve various maintenance and repair work, including replacement of water lines.
Jason Armstrong, spokesman for the Department of Parks and Recreation, said the work will also bring the golf course and adjacent driving range into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
He said work on the design phase, which is expected to cost $1.5 million, has already begun.
