Breeze Question of the Week Old Golf Course

Question:

Should the city of Cape Coral continue to pursue purchase of the old golf course acreage? If so, for what purpose?

Tom’s Answer:

The property surrounding the old golf course is densely populated and adjacent residents bought their homes to live a “golfing” lifestyle. No resident or multi-family zoning should be allowed for this area. With the current Parks GO bond mismanagement, I cannot support buying this property just to let it sit vacant for 10-years or more. I would purchase the property on contingency of an environmental impact study determining the cost of mitigation. Once verified, only then would the city open the property to developers on a lease basis. This project must keep our residents in mind first! Suggestions are to re-open as a golf course, a botanical garden, restaurants, banquet center, recreation facility, etc. City ownership would add another burden to city taxpayers, that’s not the answer.
