On September 4th, 2008 the Santa Clara County Planning Commission
considered the request of the owner of the Boulder Ridge Golf Course to
construct an outdoor events facility/tent. There was a large turnout of
residents from both the Santa Teresa and Almaden Valley areas, all of
whom voiced their opposition to the current proposal. As a result, the Commissioners voted to defer further consideration.
In addition, the County considered our request for a
full environmental impact report (EIR), which would delay things
STFNA and the other neighborhood groups offered
to meet with the owner of the golf course for the purpose of coming up
with a "win-win" solution (e.g., building an indoor facility that would
address all of our concerns about the noise from amplified music). All of your letters, e-mails, etc. made a huge difference. Thank you!
