Meeting Date: 09/08/2021  
Requested by: Chris Cornelison Submitted By: Diana Randall, Town Manager's Office
Department: Town Manager's Office  

SUBJECT:
Resolution No. (R)21-43, authorizing and designating the Town Manager to execute an agreement for financial contributions towards Pusch Ridge 9-Hole Golf Course operations with 1) El Conquistador Resort Patio Homes Association; 2) Shadows of the Ridge HOA #1; and 3) Shadows of the Ridge
RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends approval.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
In February and March 2021, Town Council instructed Town staff to continue operating the Pusch Ridge Golf Course as golf for up to three (3) years, with the expectation staff negotiate with representatives from El Conquistador Resort Patio Homes Association, the Shadows of the Ridge HOA #1, and the Shadows of the Ridge to enter into a financial agreement towards the course maintenance and operations.

The Associations will annually, for up to five (5) consecutive years starting on February 1, 2022, pay the Town as delineated below. After year three (3), continued payment to the Town by the Associations shall be contingent upon continued operation of the Pusch Ridge Golf Course as golf, which will be determined by the Town Council once Town staff returns with an analysis regarding the course's long-term sustainability.
  • El Conquistador Resort Patio Homes Association: $28,800
  • Shadows of the Ridge HOA #1: $1,950
  • Shadows of the Ridge: $3,300
BACKGROUND OR DETAILED INFORMATION:
In 2020, the Town considered closing and/or repurposing the Pusch Ridge 9-Hole Golf Course (“Pusch Course”). The neighboring homeowner associations (Associations) objected to the Town closing or repurposing the Pusch Course, and pledged a total of $34,050 for the Town to continue operating the property as golf. 

Subsequently, on February 17, 2021, and March 3, 2021, the Mayor and Council directed Town staff to continue operating the Pusch Course as golf beginning in the Fall 2021. In addition, Town staff was to negotiate with the Associations for their pledged financial contributions regarding the 9-hole course, with the expectation to enter into an agreement similar to the previously executed financial agreement between the Town, Canada Hills Community Association/Canada Hills Master Community Association and the Villages of La Canada Master Association regarding the Town's two (2) 18-hole courses.

This agreement is intended to satisfy the stated contingency and to avoid future disagreements.

The three (3) HOA boards have reviewed and agreed to the attached agreement.
FISCAL IMPACT:
The Town will receive $34,050 per year for up to five (5) consecutive years beginning February 1, 2022, which will be placed in the Community Center Fund to be applied toward the tax subsidy of operating the Pusch Ridge 9-Hole Golf Course.
 
SUGGESTED MOTION:
I MOVE to (approve or deny) Resolution No. (R)21-43, authorizing and designating the Town Manager to enter into a financial agreement with El Conquistador Resort Patio Homes Association, Shadows of the Ridge HOA #1, and Shadows of the Ridge for the operation and maintenance of the Pusch Ridge Golf Course.
