Penfield, N.Y. – The Town of Penfield is a big step closer to buying the old Shadow Pines golf course.

Monday night, the town board approved bond resolutions to finance the purchase of the property.

This comes in response to public concern over a plan to develop the land as a subdivision.

Residents near the golf course had expressed concern about its future, citing issues like the environment, infrastructure and increased traffic.

The Town Supervisor has previously stated that if the purchase goes through, the town will focus on putting in walking trails, sports fields. He said the town is not looking to build homes, something many residents are happy about.

The price tag is $3.6 million. The town hopes to close on the deal before the end of January.
