If you or I went to a bank with a business proposition to invest $1,600,000 from the bank into a driving range, we would have to present a business plan.

As taxpayers, we would like to see this business plan that shows the City of Worcester:

  • the annual payments on $1,600,000
  • annual payments to maintain the range itself (labor, balls, etc)
  • corresponding revenue estimates

We honestly can not see any scenario that this range will return $100,000 to $200,000 in revenues to the City of Worcester.   Please someone get this business plan.    If you take into account the payments on $1,600,000 and the other expenses, the range will be have hard time to just break even.
