  • This privately-owned land can only be used as an 18-hole golf course and driving range as long as the conservation easement remains in place 
  • The proposed dedication of 100+ acres is a significant increase over the development team’s initial proposal of 60 acres
  • Site-wide commitment to sustainability, renewable energy, water conservation, increased tree canopies, pollinator protections & mobility
