July Breakfast – Golf Course Redevelopment- An opportunity for both Open Space and New Housing?
With declining demand for golf and water shortages many golf courses are being decommissioned. What is the future of golf courses in San Diego? Should they be considered open space and zoned accordingly or do developers have a responsibility to appropriate land for public use? How does Southern California’s current drought situation effect golf course development and financing? Does the economic impact of tourism overcome any land use concerns? Is this an opportunity for both open space preserves and new needed housing?
Please join us as our panel examines current challenges and solutions how golf course development should fit within the community fabric.
