CDD District Manager: We Welcome Residents to Weigh in at Two Upcoming Meetings

CDD District Manager Andy Mendenhall wants concerned Westchase residents to know they can weigh in on the district’s upcoming decision regarding a potential purchase of the Westchase Golf Course on both Monday, Feb. 5 and Tuesday, Feb. 6.

Mendenhall called WOW on Monday, Jan. 22 to address the fact that some residents attending the Jan. 9 meeting of the Westchase Community District were left with the impression that that meeting would be postponed or rescheduled, causing some to feel like they did not have a chance to voice their concerns or get questions answered. Mendenhall asked WOW to let residents know that they can attend two district gatherings in February at which the purchase can be discussed.

The first is the district’s workshop, which will be held at 4 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 5 at the Maureen Gauzza Public Library on Countryway Boulevard. There supervisors will hold an informal, open discussion about the course and how they might proceed with addressing it. Mendenhall stated that residents are welcome to attend the workshop, weigh in, talk to supervisors and get their questions answered. Because it is a workshop, however, no formal decisions or motions will be made on that day.

The next day, Tuesday, Feb. 6, Westchase CDD Supervisors will hold their official board meeting, where the golf course purchase is expected to be an agenda item for consideration. Residents can also weigh in at this more structured meeting, which will be held at 4 p.m. at the Westchase Swim and Tennis Center’s activity room on Countryway Boulevard. This represents a change of venue from their usual meeting to enable more space for residents interested in attending.
