Nampa City Council voted unanimously to reopen the two municipal golf courses, Ridgecrest Golf Club and Centennial Golf Course, effective April 16. The club houses will remain closed and golfers will be limited to one player per golf cart, unless players are from the same household. During the recent closure, both golf courses used the time for maintenance typical of this time of year. Centennial Golf Course aerated the greens. Ridgecrest focused on spring spraying to make the greens healthier and will aerate in the fall.
Council unanimously approved waiving April’s parking fees for all leaseholders of City of Nampa’s downtown parking spaces due to the economy. (Note: the downtown parking garage is managed by the Nampa Development Corporation and it was not impacted by this decision.)
Mayor Kling shared that the Nampa Library is anticipated to open for curbside pickup on Monday. More details will follow.
The council also approved the ability to request extensions for the City alcohol license renewals, in keeping with certain State of Idaho extensions being granted.
“We are very concerned about the impact Coronavirus is having on our local businesses. We want to do whatever we can do to help our local businesses,” said Nampa Mayor Debbie Kling.
