Dear Walden Lake Neighbors,
The failure of the Walden Lake Country Club will once again test the resolve of our homeowners’ association, the WLCA. Five years ago, then-club owner Visions Golf applied for rezoning of the property for residential development. Visions’ application was abandoned following a July 2016 planning board hearing at which I joined the WLCA as Co-Intervenor to present a compelling case against rezoning.
New Club owners Walden Lake LLC are now proposing a development plan that dwarfs that of Visions. Planned new residences total approximately 900, over 600 of which are mostly apartments located at a town center on Clubhouse Drive. This outrageous intrusion into our carefully-planned, fully built-out community will overwhelm the infrastructure, slashing both WLCA property values and quality of life. Despite this grim scenario, the WLCA Board has inexplicably failed to take a stand against this onerous assault on our community.
Well, I’ve taken a stand and I’ve been joined by hundreds of neighbors who have signed my petition against rezoning. I will be an Intervenor against LLC’s rezoning plan, this time defending all residents’ rights. You are invited to the WLCA Meeting House on Monday October 28 at 7 PM for a screening of Wake Up Again, Walden Lake.
