Will Frisco die trying?

John Roberts

Editor, thank you for the balanced view of the Save the Peninsula petition drive in your column June 26. Although I am a 70-year-old codger, I have been assisting in this drive because I love the peninsula as it is and am in favor of open space and water conservation.

I am even more concerned about the financial impact on the town of Frisco, its businesses and residents. Since expensive homes cannot be built around this possible course, a large amount of money would be required to build and maintain it. If this comes from the golfers, the fees would be much more than “affordable.” Probably the town would be required to supply the necessary money through taxes and fees.

I note that Frisco has just increased various license fees for businesses in town. (I believe) This is an example of what could happen to fees and sales tax. My fear us that the town cannot afford a peninsula golf course, but will die trying.

Editor’s Note: The town of Frisco is not currently designing or building a golf course on the peninsula. The town is spending money to find out what recreational opportunities are available on the peninsula. While a golf course is an option, it is not being designed or planned.
