Keep the Crooked Tree Golf Course property as a Green Resource per Mason's 2010 Comprehensive Land Use Plan

One of Mason's largest and last remaining Green Resources is at risk of being developed. A proposal to change the Crooked Tree Golf Course into a Planned Unit Development (PUD) of 230 homes has been submitted to Mason's Planning Commission. The housing layout directly conflicts with how Mason wants to maintain and control development in Green Resource areas. The required home lot size and % green space for development of a Green Resource are examples where the proposed plan does not meet the guidelines set forth in Mason's 2010 Comprehensive Land Use Plan. Mason's Green Resource Guidelines are "Where development cannot be avoided, limit to residential uses at one unit per gross acre or less with at least 50% open space".

Additional potential negative impacts of the current proposal:

  • Increased traffic on Bethany Rd, Mason Montgomery Rd and the surrounding neighborhoods.
  • New narrow home lots bordering existing neighborhoods with larger home lots.
  • Changes to water runoff and drainage.
  • Increased student population in school district.

 

If you are against losing this Green Resource in the City of Mason, please sign this petition. Your support is also needed at 7pm on Tuesday June 10th for the Planning Commission Meeting at the Mason Municipal Center.

      Green space is less costly for a city to maintain. Tax revenue do not compensate for service costs associated to developed land. This, along with all the other concerns noted around this project, makes this a poor option for the city of Mason & Deerfield Township.

      We live in a golf course neighborhood just starting the same thing. The golf course owner says golf is dying and is selling to a developer. We want to stop the development.

      People paid a premium for the golf course lot. Now a rich developer is going to get richer and every homeowner in the subdivision will lose a part of their life savings. It is morally wrong to allow the rich to steal from the not so rich.

      Too much traffic, too many homes with ridiculously small lots and devaluation of our homes

      I know some of the residents and their concerns are justified.
