The Penfield Town Board
will vote on appointments to the Shadow Pines/Shadow Lakes
Properties Land Use Committee.
Shadow Pines and Shadow Lakes are Penfield golf courses owned by the Dolomite Group. The company put the courses up for sale, and residents were alarmed by the potential for development at the sites, which they say could lead to traffic and environmental problems, and could burden the school district.
The former owners of the Dolomite quarry in Penfield are reportedly interested in buying the Shadow Lakes course.
The committee will look at land use and zoning issues related to the properties and will also examine possible ways to preserve the properties or to keep them as functioning golf courses. BY JEREMY MOULE
