New sports proposed at Como Lake Park

Place a golf driving range at Como Lake Park? How about batting cages?

Two years ago, a consultant for the Erie County Fiscal Stability Authority suggested them as two of several ways county government could either save or make money. Just recently, County Executive Joel A. Giambra suggested that another consultant be hired to fully examine the feasibility of those ideas.

Giambra and Public Works Commissioner John C. Loffredo recommended that the EI Team, a Town of Tonawanda architectural and consulting firm, headed by Hormoz Mansouri, conduct the new study. If the Legislature approves, Mansouri's firm would be paid up to $40,000 for its work.

Meanwhile, the Niagara Region Disc Golf League wants to place a free disc golf course at Como Lake Park at no cost to the county, Parks Commissioner Angelo J. Sedita said in a memorandum.

That project, too, requires Legislature approval.

In disc golf, individual players throw a flying disc into a basket or sometimes at a target. The object is to traverse a course in the fewest number of throws.
