Town of Leesburg officials announced today that Arlington-based CalAtlantic Homes is the company with a contract to purchase the Westpark Golf Course. The contract is in a study period that will end in approximately a month, according to the town.

CalAtlantic representatives are planning to hold a community meeting regarding their proposed purchase and development plans for the property on Dec. 2. Location and time are still to be determined.

In October, the Leesburg Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission recommended to Town Council that the town consider purchasing the golf course. Based on the recommendation, council requested that town staff conduct a feasibility analysis of acquiring the property.

Staff concluded that the golf course would require a minimum of $1.5 million in capital improvements and enhancements on top of the listing price of $6.2 million. The staff conclusion was that the expected revenue from the golf course would not cover the operational and debt service costs. The feasibility analysis is available on the Town website at http://www.leesburgva.gov/Home/Components/News/News/5643/29.

The Leesburg Planning and Zoning Department has prepared a memo outlining the current zoning and by-right development potential of the property. Click here to view the memo and a map showing the zoning districts, as well as the floodplain and creek valley buffer limits.

As I’m reading this (Wednesday Nov. 29 at 10:00am) I still have NOT received information about the time and location of the community meeting planned for December 2. Homeowners affected by the proposed development need more than 2 days notice about time and location.
