Kathryn Whitacre 9/7/17 3:04 PM Park land is disappearing in our nation. I am having a difficult time believing that our county wants to join this trend and open the Chamber's Bay Golf Course for single family residents. It is couched in the idea these residents will be for travelers/golfers availing themselves of the course (How many people rent townhouses when traveling/); BUT who profits from this? It is not we the people of Pierce County. It is limited to the developer and contractors who put in the buildings. All buildings need to serve the general public, be a hostel for rent where some of the revenue feeds the county, have rooms for meetings, weddings, gatherings that can be rented by those wishing to use the space and again a portion of the rental fee goes to the county. It is the RIGHT thing to do. Now as we enter a time where people are loosing their integrity and moral compass we need representatives who will listen and act for the county residents.
Marie Wesley 9/7/17 3:21 PM I Oppose the Proposal! That land is precious! It is a uniquely awesome gift to current and future generations of children and adults.
Daniel Lucid 9/12/17 9:32 AM Dear Council Members: I spoke with Mike Kruger, and he told me he is distributing to everyone the list I found of top institutions and economists in the field of sports and economics. I realize there is a heated debate on the benefits and detriments of extended-stay lodging on the Chambers Creek site and Proposed Ordinance No. 2017-42. It seems most prudent to base the final decision on an economic analysis which provides hard figure projections on the long-term impact on Pierce County. Sale of long-term lodging units will generate short-term income in Pierce County, and that's good. Having long-term lodging will be a major obstacle to hosting another Open golf tournament here in Pierce County, and that's bad. As a volunteer, I would be pleased to call through the list of economists and get recommendations on experts who are competent for such an analysis. I have a Ph.D. from Yale and used to teach college, so I would feel comfortable interfacing with the academics. Daniel Lucid
G Rasmussen 9/12/17 2:47 PM Thank you, However I strongly oppose the idea of multi-purpose housing. Over population and decreased home value. The area is beautiful with more upscale homes and this will be a negative for certain.
