CORPUS CHRISTI – The fate of the old Kings Crossing clubhouse is now in the hands of the homeowners in that neighborhood.
Back in June, KRIS 6 News reported about a proposal to restore that facility and the shuttered golf course.
Residents there are now voting on a proposal to financially partner with the project. Voting started on August 1.
Meantime, the old facility is still being demolished and is mostly down to rubble while people who live in Kings Crossing decide if a new clubhouse and a renovated golf course will replace it.
Robert Cagle, president of the Kings Crossing Homeowners Association, says of the proposed facility, “It would be big enough to take care of this community, plus other golfers who may want to come in and join the club.”
However, this project only moves forward if two-thirds of Kings Crossing homeowners approve a $75 increase in their HOA dues, which would give them a social membership.
Cagle says there will be several meetings later this month to give them a chance to learn more about the project before they cast their votes.
“We’re trying to be as transparent and open as we can. People are frustrated because we don’t have all the answers yet, and we won’t have all the answers. Part of that is because until the vote is done, they’re not going to spend a lot of money with lawyers and contractual stuff not knowing if they have a project or not,” Cagle explains.
If homeowners approve the proposal, the HOA will enter into further contract negotiations with the development team. If it’s rejected, the future of the property is still unclear. Cagle says some of the property may not be abel to be developed under the current zoning because of drainage easements.
“We’re having an engineering study done just to try to answer that question so we know where we stand,” he says.
When it comes to this proposal, Cagle is urging every homeowner in Kings Crossing to make sure their voices are heard whether they’re in favor or not.
“I think it would be good for the neighborhood but there are people that have different opinions and that’s why we’re having a vote.”
There will be four informational meetings for Kings Crossing homeowners only. They will be Aug. 20 – 22 at Yorktown Baptist Church. Exact times and details are being sent to residents.
Homeowners will be able to vote on the clubhouse proposal at those meetings. The final vote will be tallied at special HOA meeting on September 15.
