City Council to Be Briefed Monday

“I think it was a mistake to even try to do something with it in the first place,” Nash said. “But the city backed into a situation, whether they intended to or not, where they have a municipal course, and hopefully they can get it right this time.”

~Alvin Nash quoted by Mason Adams in his Roanoke Times article August 3

The Roanoke Times ran a piece in the newspaper today. In his article Mason Adams raised three primary questions that may be batted around.

  • Does the council want to take another shot at development or leave it for recreation?
  • If the latter, then should it be used for athletic fields, passage for the Lick Run Greenway or maybe even an aquatic facility with swimming pools?
  • And if the council does want to stick with the 18-hole golf course, then who manages it? Meadowbrook? The city? Or should it issue a request for proposals?

Representatives of Countryside Neighborhood Alliance and Save Countryside will be on hand to monitor the discussion. We’ll post a report here after the meeting.
