Carl M. Hoss PGA Golf Professional McCall Golf Course October 7, 1993 Arthur J. Schmidt City Administrator P.O. Box 1065 McCall, ID. 83638 Dear Bud, It has come to the attention of the McCall Golf Course Advisory Committee that the replat of Timberlost VI Subdivision has been approved. It is also the understanding of the Committee that certain requirements of the Developer as they pertain to the Golf Course have not been completed. Before the October meeting of the Golf Committee, complaints were received from the Mens' Golf Association and other concerned golfers concerning the road that was cut into the right-of-way from Timberlost VI to the road entrance to the clubhouse. The minutes of the October 15, 1992 Golf Course Advisory Committee meeting reflect the strong feelings regarding this action. The minutes of this meeting state: Recently, a road was cut into the entry way to the clubhouse through City property. The committee feels there should be punishment for such an act. Ted Whiteman moved to recommend to the City Council that the City property at the northwest corner of the Timberlost VI Subdivision that was disturbed be restored equal to or better that original condition. This will include grading and landscape of entire berm from access point all the way to corner of the Golf course. Any Punitive damages shall be pursued by the City Attorney. Frank Brown seconded and the motion carried. The June 6, 1993 meeting of the McCall Planning and Zoning Commission specifically requires the placement of a cul-de-sac at Divot Lane with a land berm. This replacement of the City property that was removed has been repeatedly requested by the Golf Advisory Committee. (December, 1992, and June, 1993) This city property was removed without permission. This was to have been completed. Was the City Council aware of the requirements, or were these requirements dropped? Has any action been taken for the replacement of this property removed. (See Picture No. 1) The same P & Z meeting, January 5, 1993, required the completion of a more permanent land berm at the end of Eagle Drive. This is along the south border of the Club House parking lot. This looks very unfinished. Has this been accepted by P & Z and the City as complete? The finished berm is not in keeping with the Golf facility and certainly not with the intent of P & Z when they required such a berm. (See Picture No. 2) Also, this Committee has received complaints, including those from members of the City Council, on the road running from the Club House road into the Timberlost VI project. This road is dangerous and dirty. This road runs across City property. It is being use by real estate sales agents and workers. Why has this not been stopped? (See Picture No. 3) The McCall Golf Course Advisory Committee requests that the above items be directly addressed by the City Council. The concern is that these items will never be finished by the developer and that they will eventually be finished at the expense of the City. Because the final plat of the subdivision has been approved, we request and recommend the following: 1. That the final plat not be signed until the above land berms are finished, and the dirt road blocked, and/or 2. That these items be included in the Subdivision Agreement for completion, and 3. That these items be included in the Bonding in the amount of $30,000.00 to insure the completion at no expense to the City. Appropriate copies of Minutes of Meetings and Maps and Pictures are enclosed for reference. This letter has been unanimously approved for mailing by the Golf Course Advisory Committee at its regular meeting on October 6, 1993. The preference of the Golf Committee is the Plat not be signed and allowed to be recorded until these items are completed. We respectfully request an answer in writing. Yours very truly, Ted Whiteman, Chairman c.c. Ted Burton, City Attorney
