Proposed golf course near Port Orford gets another county OK

GOLD BEACH (AP) — Curry County commissioners have approved a proposed golf course near Port Orford for a second time, after an appeal by an environmental group sent the matter back to the county.

Commissioners tentatively approved a clubhouse design on Wednesday after a state Land Use Board of Appeals remanded the matter on the issue of design capacity.

The World newspaper of Coos Bay reports that (http://goo.gl/bTZBPn ) that the Oregon Coast Alliance had appealed the county's approval of a conditional use permit for the golf course.

Because the golf course would be built within three miles of the Port Orford Urban Growth Boundary, the structures on the course must not have a combined design capacity greater than 100.

The county placed three conditions on the approval, which won't be final until commissioners sign the final order in a meeting Oct. 7. The plans submitted in the remand hearing met the conditions.

Developers say they think any future appeals of the course will go nowhere as they have responded to the specific LUBA concern. They hope to begin course construction next year.
