Belle Forest residents object to plan for Mountain Road golf 0) driving range

Residents of the Belle Forest community have objected to a neighbor's plans to build a golf driving range near the intersection of Mountain Road and Route 100.

They will ask during a hearing Sept. 29 that the county Board of Appeals deny Richard Fine, whose family owns a Brooklyn Park car wash, a special exception to operate a recreational facility on 32 acres on the northeast side of Mountain Road.

An administrative hearing officer granted Mr. Fine a special exception last year to operate the driving range in a low-density, residential district.

Residents who fear that the driving range could pose a traffic hazard have challenged that decision, sending the case to the appeals panel. The Greater Pasadena Council, an umbrella group of community associations, also opposes the decision.
