Three phases, 10-year project: Cape Council hears parks plan, funding ideas. Chuck Ballaro, Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Cape Coral City Council got its first look at a proposed Parks Master Plan Wednesday.
David Barth of Barth Associates made its draft plan presentation during a special workshop meeting at City Hall.
Reactions were mixed and before the presentation even started, several people got up during public comment and asked why the Golf Course property wasn't included in the mix.
"The plan needs to reflect the Golf Course. We need one large green space to be maintained," said Max Forgey, a certified planner. "We hope that amenity, with a recreation component, will continue to serve Cape Coral."

One of the largest builders in the country removed apartments, multistory condos and commercial options from its possible designs for land on a Cape Coral golf course. But a group of residents said that isn't enough and will oppose any development to keep the course a green space.
D.R. Horton filed a request recently to change the future land use regulations for a 175-acre site located at 4003 Palm Tree Blvd. The site, home to the abandoned golf course known as The Golf Club, would be turned into a residential development with about 400 homes.
