Golf question unanswered

FRISCO – Most opponents and supporters of a golf course on the Frisco Peninsula Recreation Area went to bed early this morning without knowing the results of ballot Question 200.

As of 12:30 a.m. today, results in only eight of 17 Summit County precincts had been tabulated, and Frisco’s Precinct 16 was not among them.

The Save the Peninsula Coalition initiative – if approved – would prevent the town from planning, designing, constructing, developing or approving a golf course on the peninsula.

A similar vote in 1992 produced the same result, but left a loophole for land-use planning, according to an interpretation from the town attorney.

Frisco elected officials exercised that loophole earlier this year to do a fit-test of a number of recreational amenities on the peninsula. They learned a nine-hole golf course would allow an ice rink, multi-purpose building, sledding hill, ski jump and parking to coexist on the town’s 219 acres. Question 200 was a reaction to that land-use planning exercise.
