March 2 – Request For Proposal- Countryside GC

According to Brian Townsend a RFP will come before Council that will offer a 10-year lease for the Countryside Golf Course property. According to Friday’s budget work session the money to fix up Countryside can come from the Parks & Recreation Master Plan that was adopted by Council for funding at $7 million a year for 5 years. The amount suggested was $3 million for Countryside. To balance the budget, however, the City Manager, Darlene Burcham and Sherman Stovall, Dir. of Management and Budget had the $7 million as an option to postpone one year as a way to cut this year. So it will be interesting to see what happens on March 2. Also deferred to out year(s) is funding planned for the new super library.
.
The three Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) that were not in the pipeline were Countryside (funding suggested above), the Market building (funding potential from Economic & Community Development Reserve for a portion) – question: is this where the amphitheatre money sits?
.
The third item is the potential Conference (Hotel Roanoke) Center expansion (part can come from Conference Center Commission Reserves).
