City looking to buy Lakeside Golf Club
The city is in negotiations to purchase land now occupied by Lakeside Golf Club, a city official has confirmed.
Frank Suarez, spokesman for Fort Wayne’s Division of Public Works and City Utilities, said the purchase is being undertaken to improve stormwater management and help protect upstream neighborhoods from flooding.
Lakeside, which has an 18-hole and a 9-hole golf course, is owned by Riverview Inc. The course’s address is 746 N. Coliseum Blvd., south of Lake Avenue.
The course is one of several whose land in recent years lately sold for other purposes, including housing development.
