October 1, 2012 is the official closed date for the Wellington Hills Golf Course. The Wellington Hills Golf Course is a small golf course, with only 9 holes but a beautiful 'island' it's surrounded by tall trees (Doug Fir, Western Red Cedar, Western Hemlock, Big Leaf Maple ) - some as old as 90 years.
Neighbors to Save Wellington Park (NSWP) has hired an attorney to slow down the County's speeding freight train of development (They've been planning this takeover of the golf course for awhile (2006) but didn't tell local residents until May 8, 2012 about their plans.). After attending dozens of meetings over the past months, I half-expect the County to ignore all the rules and to immediately start cutting down the trees and bulldozing the terrain.
Be sure to tell your kids, life is most definitely not fair when dealing with land developers.
