The Delaware Parks and Recreation Advisory Board will consider recommendations for the Hidden Valley golf course tonight.

The Hidden Valley working group proposed a price adjustment for the city-owned par-28 course. While membership and punch card rate would remain the same for this year, single and senior rates would be elevated by $0.50 to $9 and $8.50, respectively, for the first nine holes plus an additional $4.50 for a second round for the weekdays.

Additionally, the proposal would create a junior student category, for those up to 12 years old, at $5 for the first round of nine holes on the weekdays. The student category would include ages 13 to 22 at $7 for a round compared with the current $8 fee.

Also, the working group proposed that memberships would be active for the course from April 1 to Oct. 31. Members would get bonus time to play on the course outside of the time frame if the weather is good.

In other business, the board will:

• Consider a recommendation for the city’s bicycle plan

• Receive an update about the YMCA’s recreation services and parks activities

The board will meet at City Hall, 1 S. Sandusky St., 7 p.m. in council chambers.
