The results of a survey mailed to 28,000 Columbia residents will be reviewed by the Columbia Council before it votes on a proposal to restrict memberships at the Hobbit's Glen Golf Course.
The proposal, made by John Hansen, chairman of the council, would bar sales of so-called annual and daily memberships to people who don't pay the Columbia Association an annual assessment fee.
Golfers who now hold those memberships could continue to renew their memberships under the proposal. And those who purchase so-called package plan memberships would also be allowed to buy and renew those memberships, under the Hansen proposal.
The council was scheduled to vote on the proposal Thursday, but decided to table a vote until the survey results were compiled and studied.
The survey asked Columbia residents their thoughts on a wide range of issues, from how much the association should charge in annual assessment fees to what measures they want the association to take to curb crowding at association-operated facilities.
The cutoff date for returning the four-page survey was yesterday.
Pam Mack, Columbia Association vice president, said about 5,000 surveys had been received.
They were mailed to residents Sept. 4.
The association plans to have a market research firm compile the results and issue a report for the association to use in mapping out a long-term plan for Columbia.
