Vince Ucci started this petition to City of Elliot Lake and

This petition is meant to express our deep concerns over the proposed sale of Stone Ridge Golf Course to an unsolicited proponent for 1.5 million dollars.  It is our hope to delay this sale until the following questions can be answered.  

Why is the sale moving forward without an appraisal being done? What possible value could there be in this decision?

Why is the price set so absurdly low, well below the amount the City of Elliot Lake and Retirement Living have put into it?

If it is the city's desire to sell Stone Ridge Golf Course, why was it not placed on the open market?

What are the intentions of the potential buyer for Stone Ridge Golf Course?

What experience does he/she have in operating a golf course?

Is there any provision in the sale that guarantees that the course will not close?

Why is a sale of this magnitude taking place without a full open Council?

Why is it being done in what appears to be such an expedited fashion? Especially when the province is moving towards easing restrictions which would allow for an open council.

Ultimately, we as citizens of Elliot Lake want to ensure that we do not lose our golf course.  We are a community without a Civic Center, without a Curling Club and without a Recreation Center amongst other things.  We are asking that a decision on this matter be deferred until these questions can be adequately answered so we don't end up losing our golf course as well.  Stone Ridge Golf Course is a source of great municipal pride for many Elliot Lake citizens and not one we want to give up, especially in such a rushed, secretive manner for millions less than it is worth.
