In 2004, R & D Development obtained a city permit to develop an 18-hole golf course, full-service clubhouse and function facility, and between 75 and 100 single- and multi-family homes on the property. R & D Development ultimately went bankrupt, but not before 19 lots were cleared and 14 homes were built on Pine Tree Drive and Muirfield Lane. Significant land clearing for the golf course also took place, along with infrastructure work, including the construction of a pump station.
Last night, one of the homeowners, Steve Early, handed city officials a petition in support of the project that was signed by residents at 11 of the 14 homes on Pine Tree Drive and Muirfield Lane.
Early said the residents there are tired of seeing piles of rocks and weeds where the golf course project was supposed to be built. Early also commended Toll Brothers for working with homeowners in his neighborhood.
“They’ve been a great partner to us we want to see the development succeed,” said Early.
