Appeal hearing on proposed golf center is postponed

An appeal hearing concerning a golf-oriented recreation center planned for the intersection of Route 100 and Mountain Road has been postponed until 2 p.m. on Nov. 18.

An administrative hearing officer granted Richard A. Fine, whose family runs a Brooklyn Park carwash, a special exception last month to operate a "commercial recreational facility" on 32 partially wooded acres on the north side of Mountain Road.

Neighbors, who fear the project will disturb their bedroom community, have challenged the special exception. A hearing before the county Board of Appeals scheduled for Wednesday was postponed because of schedule conflicts.

The Greater Pasadena Council, which represents several nearby communities, and other groups protested at the hearing this summer that the recreation center would bring additional traffic to Mountain Road, especially during rush hour.

The facility would include a 40-tee driving range, an 18-hole miniature golf course, baseball batting cages and a pro shop.
