A group of Killearn Estates Homeowners has filed a court action with regards to a redevelopment plan proposed by the current owner of the Killearn Golf and Country Club.
The Killearn Estates Homeowners Association is not a party to the suit.
The redevelopment plan was announced last month. The plan called for the closing of the north nine holes of the 27-hole golf course and the development of approximately 30 acres to raise funds for club improvements.
The court action filed yesterday in circuit court is for a declaration of rights and guidance from the court in addressing the provisions of a 1981 recorded right to purchase – no damages or money are being sought.
At a neighborhood meeting of approximately 50-70 homeowners late yesterday afternoon in a cul-de-sac at the end of Kilmartin Street, homeowner Mark Lawson told the group “we are filing this action to get clarification about what we can and cannot. I want the facts on the table, I do not want to be steamrolled by Mr. Tuck.”
The group has been meeting weekly to discuss the redevelopment plan.
