Lake Geneva approves study for golf course property options

LAKE GENEVA, WISC. — Lake Geneva City Council has agreed to order a new study on future redevelopment options for the former Hillmoor Golf Course property.

The city council voted 6-2 on Sept. 9 to authorize planners to create a possible blueprint for the 200-acre site, which has been at the center of heated debate in recent years over whether it should be developed or left alone.

Brian Munson, Principal with Vandewalle & Associates, said the concept plan will give the city an opportunity to tell White River Holdings the types of development the city wants to see.

“Instead of a proposal to come and be reactionary, it is an opportunity for the city to be proactive,” Munson said.

The concept plan will cost the city about $29,500 and will take about two months to complete. Planners will be directed to to present three potential development concepts for the old golf course site, and the city then will lead public discussions on the topic.

The final concept plan is set to be completed by early November and will be available for public review for 30 days, then discussed during a public hearing scheduled for Dec. 9.
