The HCFCD acquired the community fixture Jan. 30, 2020, with the goal of replacing the golf course with a regional stormwater detention basin. While the district acquired 27.63 acres with the country club and adjoining facilities, the remaining 206 acres encompassing the golf course are owned by the Cypress Forest Public Utility District.
HCFCD Deputy Executive Director Matt Zeve said as of Jan. 7, the district is still working through the details of the deal with the CFPUD.
“We are still working with the PUD on the ultimate plan for the area,” Zeve said. “We will be sure to send out a notice to the community once any plans have been finalized.”
The acquisition was funded through the HCFCD’s bond approved by voters in 2018, as $100 million of bond funds were allocated for property acquisition in the Cypress Creek watershed.
