Our Chance for a New Flying Field in Salt Lake

In case you're unaware, for a multitude of reasons, several of Salt Lake's city golf courses are being shut down, starting with Glendale (1630 W 2100 S) and the Jordan River Par 3 (1250 N Redwood Rd). Rumor also has it that Bonneville (near the Zoo / This Is The Place) is next on the chopping block.

Lots of information Here!

The city is currently taking comments on ideas for re-purposing of these lands.

This is a PHENOMENAL opportunity for us to get a new RC flying field in Salt Lake City.

Though Jordan River Par 3 is most likely too close to the airport to be used, Glendale and / or Bonneville could be a great location.

I can't imagine having a central flying field so close to Salt Lake. A proper field minutes away! This is really exciting!

Check out the link above / photo below. You'll find the dates and locations for Open House meetings so you can go comment (The first one is tonight!). There will also be comments taken online, and though that appears to not be set up yet, the Park's email is outdoorsslc@slcgov.com and phone is 801-910-5356.

PLEASE make your voice heard!!

Great idea!

Exactly what I thought when I heard that on the local news. Will check it out. Would be cool to have a new place to fly. Hopelessly addicted to FPV.

Posted yesterday on the Ute RC webpage. A good showing of warm bodies would be helpful in getting the ball rolling for the new airfield at California Ave.

Not a Ute-only event but Mr. Rick Graham from Salt Lake City Parks & Recreation will be doing a walk through of the proposed model port site. The address is 7500 West 1300 South on the south side up on an old landfill.

Feel free to invite non-Utes out that used to fly at the old field site and come out to show support for the new model port.


The SLC parks department web page for the new model port is here
