With the city council vote earlier this week that paved the way for the redevelopment of Mission Valley Middle School as a 325,000 square foot senior living community, talk has picked up around Prairie Village about what the future holds for another property that has been rumored as a possible redevelopment target: Homestead Country Club.
Situated on 14 acres off Mission Road, the club has been trying to reduce its debt load for more than 15 years. The club’s bank note changed hands in November, and its board has been working with the new note owner on potential approaches to keep the club viable.
The club held meetings for members to discuss options in December and again Jan. 7. Club board president Cyd Nelson said no next steps have been determined, but that the board and its members are very much hoping to keep the club in operation.
“Homestead Country Club and its board of directors remain aggressively committed to ensuring the long-term strategic success of the club and its members,” she said.
Nelson characterized this week’s meeting with members as “wholly positive” and said there was ample appetite to find an avenue to keep moving forward. Nelson could not confirm rumors that the club may sell a portion of its land as part of a debt restructuring deal, but did say they were considering a “variety of alternatives.”
