Countryside Maintenance – Begging For Dollars

Monday evening the sale of the Countryside property (one acre) to Newbern, LLC, for the TRANE building expansion will be finalized. The Planning Commission was unanimous in their recommendation. It will come before Roanoke City Council at the 7:00 PM meeting. This acre will pinch the 2nd and 3rd fairway and at a minimum will make it very “unattractive”. I will ask Council to “earmark” the $55,000 paid for the acre for maintenance of Countryside Golf Course. Maintenance or improvements that will not be covered by the expected new operating agreement being drafted. As some of you may remember – the most urgent need is the golf cart paths and irrigation system. Below are two conflicting architectural renderings. The first is what I received several months ago along with a “Request For Comment”. The second is an attachment on Monday’s agenda. Now maybe I was not updated on the change in building design and the parking reconfiguration that took place prior to the Planning Commission review. At this point I don’t know what is actually going there or when. If you figure it out please let me know.
