Killearn Homeowners Show Preference for Compromise and Purchase of Golf Course

The Killearn Homes Association (KHA) recently sent out the results of a survey related to the potential re-development of the “North Nine” holes of the Killearn golf course.

The “North Nine” was recently closed by the owner of the golf course, Barton Tuck, who cited a lack of play and operation expenses as the reason for the decision.

Of the 3,727 surveys sent, approximately 19% were returned with answers to four questions.

The answers to the questions show that 77% of the respondents prefer the KHA to engage in mediation with the golf course owner with regards to future re-development.

Approximately 53% of the respondents encouraged the KHA to explore purchasing the golf course.

Respondents in overwhelming majorities did not want the KHA to participate in a trial and did not want the KHA to stop all involvement.

The City of Tallahassee Planning Commission is scheduled take up the rezoning application of Mr. Tuck on February 7th at 6:00 pm in the City Commission Chambers.


KHA Survey Questions

Approximately 77% of the those who responded answered YES to the the following question:

Would you like to see KHA to continue to engage with mediation discussions with Mr. Tuck to explore the possibility of resolution before trial? Resolution would require KHA to agree not to oppose, in concept, the closing of the North Nine and some development of the golf course property.

Approximately 53% of the those who responded answered YES to the the following question:

Would you support KHA exploring the purchase of the golf course on behalf of all homeowners?
