Q. When is the city going to finish the Inland Greens park and golf course and will access be reopened into the area from Elisha Drive?

A. Construction of the new Inland Greens park and golf course will be completed by the fall of 2014, according to city spokesperson Dylan Lee. The project was delayed from its original scheduled opening of this fall because of complexity in obtaining permits needed for large-scale stormwater improvements on various properties, Lee said.

This project involves extensive stormwater improvements on the city-owned Inland Greens golf course and Wiregrass Road, a public facility, as well as design and construction of a park and a nine-hole, Par-3 golf course,” Lee said in an email.

Lee said the city has no plans for additional vehicular or pedestrian accesses. The city owns only 31 acres of the original 18-hole golf course, and the rest of the development is private. For any other access points, the city would have to require easements, or the Inland Greens and Cedar Ridge homeowners associations would have to create the accesses themselves.

Q. What is the status of the stormwater mitigation project at Inland Greens golf course and how much of this is being paid for from the Wilmington Municipal Golf Course enterprise fund?”

A. According to Dylan Lee, a spokesman for the city Wilmington, springtime will see the commencement of the Inland Greens project; and zero dollars will come from the golf fund.

“The Inland Greens project will get under way this spring and involves extensive stormwater improvements on the city-owned Inland Greens golf course and Wiregrass Road, a public facility, as well as design and construction of a park and a 9-hole, par-3 golf course,” said Lee.

“The total cost of the project is $1.95 million,” said Lee. “This includes land purchase, extensive stormwater improvements, and construction of a 9-hole golf course and park. Funding comes from the city’s general fund and stormwater fund. None of it comes from the city’s golf course fund.”

The Inland Greens project is projected to be completed in the fall of 2013.
