Waverly Oaks golf course owner takes housing plan off the table


Waverly Oaks Golf Club owner Mark Ridder took his plan for a cluster development of 113 houses off the table prior to the Planning Board’s scheduled opening hearing last Monday, but he plans to be back soon. Ridder said he’s just adding a few tweaks to satisfy technical issues raised by town officials during a preliminary review. The plan calls for clustering the houses on 44 acres of the 242-acre course off Long Pond Road. The housing would wipe out a nine-hole “executive” course but would leave the 18-hole main golf course intact. Ridder said he has already received permission from the state to use an environmental impact study he did a few years ago for this latest proposal, rather than being required to produce a new one.
