If RSR were to rebuild the golf course, the City could initiate a five-year TIF that would generate approximately $ 315,000 to help pay for the costs of operating the golf course.
And on that sunny April evening at the Apopka Amphitheater, Nelson presented the proposal, answered questions and even requested a public opinion poll, which he was applauded by the 500 RSR residents in attendance. .
But a lot has happened since April.
There are a lot of questions to answer, and a lot of details to clarify at the workshop, but it’s an event that many city council members have been calling since April.
“Since last April, I have been advocating for a public meeting open to all so that they can share public comments on this specific matter,” said Commissioner Kyle Becker. still deal for the 51 acres? Have they gone through the conservation easement modification process? What is the cost of moving away from Harmon’s communication tower? Should we sell Harmon for $ 2.5 million or $ 6 million? All of these things should be discussed in an open forum.
Commissioner Diane Velazquez is also looking forward to the workshop to clarify this three-way land swap.
âFor most of this year, the Rock Springs Home Owners Association offered the purchase of the deceased golf course to its residents from the current owner, the Golf Group. This proposal was discussed with the residents, meetings were held, to include a vote, and to date no formal presentation or request has been made to the town of Apopka. This is where I think the suggestion of a âPublic Workshopâ is a welcome vehicle that can establish a solid path and solution for the parties involved.
As an elected member of the municipal council and resident of RSR [that lives on golf course lands], it is very important for me to help the people of RSR to find a solution with which they agree, and at the same time to be fair to the inhabitants of Apopka who have expressed and are interested in the outcome of this proposition. As Apopka grows, the responsibility for finding solutions to problems of this nature rests with both its residents and city council.
