Golf Course Fate NOT tied to Name Change

The renaming of Countryside in memory of Roy Stanley Miller is becoming a distraction to the vision Countryside Neighborhood Alliance has for the revitalization of the championship Countryside Golf Course. I will be writing more on the Roanoke Times article later. However, I wanted to assure all that our vision for the property has not changed since Roanoke City purchased the Countryside property in November, 2005.
Please continue to sign our petition to support Countryside remaining a PUBLIC championship golf course, retaining the indoor tennis building, and creating a world class indoor competition pool.
PS: We have a paper petition with 700 signatures to date supporting our vision that does not include a name change.

But is the name change tied to the golf course’s fate?

Countryside Neighborhood Alliance and the community as a whole certainly did not expect to become political pawns in this issue.

I want you to know my disappointment in the Roanoke Times headline “NAME TIED TO COURSE’S FATE”. The contents of the article itself is not inaccurate but the Headline is totally inaccurate.

There are two totally separate visions.

Vision ONE is keeping the golf course and has nothing to do with vision TWO.

Vision TWO, the renaming of the golf course, would be an honor and certainly can wait until after Vision ONE is accomplished.

Our paper petition of 700 plus signatures does not mention Roy Stanley. The online petition does and has been changed in light of the political spin that diverts away from our Vision ONE.
