Poway residents to vote to change local golf club to residential space

Posted: Updated:

 POWAY (KUSI) — Poway residents voted against Measure A, meaning the StoneRidge Country Club could close as early as Wednesday. 

Voters were given a choice about Measure A, which would amend the city's general plan to rezone up to 25 acres of the county club from an "open space-recreation'' designation to "residential condominium.''

That could clear the way later for the development of up to 180 luxury condos for residents over 55 years old. The specifics of the project would be approved later by the City Council.

Supporters contended the measure would protect open space and an 18-hole golf course while providing a 10,000-square-foot clubhouse open to the public.

Campaigning mostly via social media, opponents said golf course owner Michael Schlesinger shouldn't be trusted, based on his track record in other cities, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
