Alan Kanabay, President of the Turnberry Property Owners Association sent out the following email at 8:13 last night to members on Tuesday after the village issued a press release on the massive enlargement of the Turnberry Country Club. It has some interesting background information.
On Wednesday December 16 at 7:30 PM the regularly scheduled fourth-quarter meeting of the TPA Membership will be held at Turnberry Country Club.
In preparation for the quarterly meeting, the TPA Board routinely meets a few days prior to set the agenda as well as prepare for presentations and action items.
This meeting occurred at President Alan Kanabay’s residence on Sunday December 13.
On Sunday afternoon (just prior to our executive Board meeting), Village of Lakewood President Erin Smith and Trustee Gene Furry contacted the directors and asked if they could address the Board.
We agreed, and at that meeting they announced the potential sale of Turnberry Country Club to be redeveloped into Turnberry Resort and Spa.
This includes an expansion to include 240 condominiums housed in three and four story buildings, plus
- a hotel and spa
- health club
- swimming pools
- a full service r
- banquet facilities
- underground parking,
and more to be built on the existing Turnberry Country Club property.
This was the first time the Board became aware of this project, and after many questions, the Board was provided with the specifics listed above, which are in the attached press release.
Other information disclosed to the Board included an artist rendering, name of the developer, and architecture firm, also given in the attached press release.
Since the fourth-quarter meeting of the TPA had already been scheduled and posted on the TPA website, the Board agreed to allow Erin Smith to address the neighbors regarding the potential land-development project at this resident meeting facilitated by TPA. This announcement will be at the conclusion of the TPA meeting.
The TPA Board has not taken a position on this plan due to the lack of factual information and as a result has only committed to the Village to serve as a means to disseminate this information at this time.
Attached is the release from the Village and the Developer to the public – the TPA Board was not offered the opportunity to review and comment on the release prior to its dissemination to the general public.
I hope to see you at the fourth-quarter meeting of the TPA on December 16, 7:30 p.m. at Turnberry Country Club. Please urge your neighbors to join you.
After a brief TPA meeting, the remainder of the meeting will be dedicated to the announcement regarding this project.
