A judge has ruled that the South Jordan, Utah property needs to be sold because of a dispute between owners, but opinion is split in the area over the need to approve a bond for the city to buy it. According to records, the property’s assessed value is more than $5 million, but experts feel it would sell for much more.
Residents who live near the Glenmoor Golf Course in South Jordan, Utah are trying to do everything they can—including posting large signs on the property’s fences that urge others to “Get Involved!” (https://www.saveglenmoor.com)—to prevent it from turning into a large development, reported Good4Utah.com, the website of television station ABC 4 of Salt Lake City.
But It’s unclear if South Jordan residents who don’t live near the development would approve a bond for the city to buy it, Good4Utah.com reported.
A judge has ruled that the property needs to be sold, because of a dispute between owners, Good4Utah.com reported, and what its future looks like is unclear.
According to records, the property’s assessed value is more than $5 million with 36 parcels of land, Good4Utah.com reported. Experts note that it would sell for more millions more considering the area and its value to new development.
Overdevelopment is a worry for residents like Cheryl Hansen, who worries about the overcrowding, and traffic. “Should there be a housing development come in, it would be disastrous,” Hansen told Good4Utah.com. “We don’t have the infrastructure to handle any more buildings than what we have right now.”
While the issue has been at the forefront for neighbors, not all South Jordan residents feel the same way, Good4Utah.com reported. Many who don’t live near the golf course question if another course is needed, or if the cost is worth it.
“There’s how many golf courses in Salt Lake County? It’s not like there’s a shortage,” said resident Renee Vareta, who said she would like to see the issue on the ballot, too.
“I don’t think the city should be buying golf courses without more input from the citizens,” said Vareta.
For now, a bond is expected to be on the November ballot, but that could change depending on what councilors decide during their September 4th meeting, Good4Utah.com reported.
Other residents who don’t live near the course said they would be willing to pay for a bond if it meant the area wouldn’t be developed. Several homeowners worry about the area growing further, Good4Utah.com reported, because there are already serious traffic issues.
