There’s a lot that can be done with 126 acres in the Bay Area.

That is the conclusion of residents and city leaders in Hayward, which is weighing options to redevelop the 126-acre, 18-hole Skywest public golf course.

Members of the public have suggested everything from bringing in another golf course operator or conserving the land as open space to creating an urban farm or building a business park there, Hayward City Councilmember Angela Andrews told me.

The city started soliciting ideas in June. But its location at the Hayward Executive Airport means that any future use would need to comply with Federal Aviation Administration guidelines that limit the height and location of residential and commercial development.

An early version of the conceptual plan for the site presented by Sheelen at the August meeting suggested reserving between 40 and 50 acres on the western side of the property for a business park and dedicating a slightly smaller swath bordering Kennedy Park near Hesperian Avenue for recreational use.
