Clearing up a misconception

Tom Castrigno

I wish to respond to a letter that appeared May 22 in reference to the ballot initiative regarding a golf course on the peninsula.

The writer states “Had the proponents of the recent Save The Peninsula Coalition initiative attended work sessions and council meetings, they would understand why the council hired a consultant.”

The coalition is made up of a broad group of individuals far beyond the two names that appear as official sponsors as required. Many of the members have attended repeated meetings on the topic, including the town meeting held at the community center on third street that was filled to standing room only.

The group clearly understands the council’s reasoning for hiring a consultant and supports the land planning process, with the exception of including a golf course in the plan for the peninsula.

The intent of the initiative is to accurately determine whether the majority of the citizens of Frisco wish to see a golf course on the peninsula or not -by giving the people a choice to vote on the matter.
