On Aug. 8, I read an article written by Dan Tamblo, a good writer. I have also read a few other articles about The Lakes and the proposed residential housing project in this paper. I agree with those homeowners (51 percent or more, I hope) who do not support further residential development at The Lakes Golf Course.
Getting approval from 51 percent of neighbors to change the CC&Rs governing the closed Lakes Golf Course is only the first of many challenges Pulte Homes must overcome to build 250 homes on the land. Its next greatest challenge would be surviving the city’s zoning process.
I am a 35-year resident of Ahwatukee and I read with interest Ed Corona’s commentary on the golf course situation (“Save The Lakes needs new plan,” AFN, July 30). The overall gist was that since there seems to be no other solution on the horizon, we had best accept the Pulte program and move on lest the situation gets only worse. Win one for Mr. Gee.

There are so many points to deny the Gee/Pulte proposal as stated by many Ahwatukee homeowners in the AFN and by Save the Lakes: traffic increase, pollution increase, lack of open space, lack of storm drainage, lack of good golf courses — revenue/jobs, negative property values...
I nearly ran over a good-sized turtle last week in the middle of 44th Street in front of the clubhouse of the closed Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Club. Despite all of the assurances, this turtle was escaping the slow destruction of the course and draining of the lakes. It is the efforts of Pulte Homes to make the place look so physically bad and unattractive that homeowners will feel resigned and agree to the deed change.
I’ve been an Ahwatukee resident since 1999 and I would love to keep the Lakes golf course, but the truth is I haven’t played golf or supported the local courses in over four years. Not because of any reason other than I don’t golf as much as I used to. People do not spend time playing golf like they used to. I played three-four times a week back in the ’90s, but now play less than one time every four years. How many of you actually play golf and supported the Lakes or Country Club?

The beginning of the school year provides opportunities for fresh ideas and positive changes to enhance learning experiences for all children. During the spring and summer, the Kyrene School District Governing Board and district leaders were hard at work considering ideas that would impact the budget for the 2014-15 school year. The final budget approved on July 8 was not only balanced, it also represents an investment in spending for whole-child programs such as art, music, physical education, library, math/literacy coaches who provide support and a change to the start times for Kyrene middle schools. This budget also demonstrates the board’s commitment to invest in one of our most valuable resources — teachers and staff who received a cost of living increase.

The owners of the closed Lakes Golf Course have been pumping water out of the lakes on the property for weeks, and it will still be weeks until the lakes are dry, they said.
In response to the recent “op-ed” published in the Ahwatukee Foothills News on July 13 by Randy Christman, a representative of Pulte Corp; I would like to put to rest the misinformation Pulte is providing the Ahwatukee homeowners, regarding their highly marketed “proposal” to turn the Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Course into a housing development.
