The link Web Link provides some history of Edgewood Park which includes:
"Master Plan Report for Edgewood County Park" Prepared(in 1982) for the Division of Parks and Recreation San Mateo County - by CHNMB Associates. (excerpt)
"The clubhouse will provide both golfers as well as other park users with indoor and outdoor sanitation and food-serving facilities. Inside will be ... an educational display showing park ecology and endangered habitats... The site of the clubhouse will provide visitors with an attractive setting among natural vegetation and offer excellent views overlooking the park." and, a link Web Link to a letter from Robert Trent Jones II in support of a golf course in Edgewood Park, as well as a letter from Cecil Andrus(then Secretary of the Interior)Web Link who contributed ~$1,000,000 from the Secretary's Discretionary Fund for the purchase of the Edgewood Park land for recreation and open spaces comprised of nature trails, picnic areas, a golf course and other compatible uses.

MROSD should pursue revenue producing use of a small fraction of lands under its control, not a $200,000,000 bond measure.
