Current Issues & Projects - Woodbridge Board of Selectmen
New Options Explored for Former Country Club Property – May 2018 – The Selectmen began consideration of preliminary draft proposals for this property with the intention of using the Public Opinion Survey results to help guide their review of potential options. (As a reminder, the presentation on the survey results, and links to video recordings of meetings where the Selectmen discussed the data and heard public comments, can be found at the Town website).
At the May 9, 2018 Board of Selectmen's meeting, three preliminary draft concepts were reviewed:
- Option A - includes an offer to purchase approximately 10 acres to build an assisted living facility.
- Option B - includes an offer to purchase approximately 40 acres for 55-and-over, single-unit housing. The proposal also includes an 18-hole renovated public golf course, a renovation of the clubhouse to include a banquet hall and restaurant, and renovation of the pool for public use.
- Option C - includes an offer to purchase a portion of the parcel to build 68 age-restricted, single family homes along a 9-hole renovated golf course, with recreational space and approximately two miles of walking trails for public use, and 132 age-restricted townhomes on both sides of Woodfield Road.
In addition to the above options, the Board of Selectmen also received information regarding a Solar option for the former-CCW property at the June 13, 2018 meeting:
To help the Town of Woodbridge understand its fiscal situation and to prepare for potential future challenges, the Board of Selectmen have contracted with CERC to undertake a Fiscal Health Analysis for the Town. This analysis will consider how the Town’s current grand list, public services, and demographics have changed over time (going back ten years and more when possible) and compared to both the state and a set of comparable towns (to be determined by CERC and the Town). The Fiscal Health Analysis will also identify policies that would help the town strengthen its fiscal health for the future. The project is expected to conclude in late-summer 2018 with a public presentation to the Board of Selectmen. A preliminary check-in to review data input received to-date took place at the June 13, 2018 Board of Selectmen meeting -- these presentation materials are available at the link below.
