Commission Recommends Denial of Plan to Build Seven Homes on Unused Golden Valley Country Club Land
A preliminary plan to develop an unused portion of land owned by the Golden Valley Country Club and convert it to single family homes was denied by the city’s planning commission.
The Golden Valley Planning Commission voted 6-0 at its Aug. 23 meeting to deny a preliminary plan brought forward by Ron Clark Construction. The developer wants to build seven new single family homes on the northwest portion of the Golden Valley Country Club property, near the intersection of Pennsylvania and Plymouth Avenue.
The commissioners had questions about stormwater management and landscaping. The residents, meanwhile, liked the idea of adding pedestrian amenities in the area, but they raised concerns about the possibility of loitering.
The Golden Valley City Council will now review the preliminary plan at its next meeting. The council will have the option to deny the application, provide comments and send it back to the Planning Commission for additional review, or they could approve the Preliminary Plan.
Only with the council approval would the applicant be able to move along in the process to the Final PUD Plan.
