Sale in works for Regent Park golf course

Regent Park Golf Club soon could be turned into apartments and townhomes.

York County Councilman Michael Johnson posted plat drawings on his Facebook page after fielding questions from neighbors. The development hasn’t been approved by the county planning commission, but zoning allows residential uses.

An initial site plan does not show space for a golf course. A detailed plan will be presented at the Nov. 9 planning commission meeting.

Homeowners in Regent Park received an email from their association on Oct. 7 stating the course should be sold by Oct. 30, and that plans were for 60 townhomes. The following day, another message informed homeowners there would be 250 apartments in addition to the townhomes. Johnson met with residents Oct. 9 to discuss what he knew of the plan.

Johnson said Monday he plans to meet with developers for more information. The sale of the property is not expected to take place until next spring, Johnson said.

Because current zoning allows the projected uses the county would have little to say about the project beyond basic reviews. It would not require York County Council approval.

A list for the Oct. 12 planning commission meeting includes the plan for 250 apartment. The Nov. 9 planning commission meeting won’t have a formal public comment period, though the commission sometimes allows comments.
