Roanoke City Council Approves Countryside Golf Course

Roanoke, VA - Roanoke City Council has finally approved a solid course of action for a large chunk of undeveloped land that used to be the site of Countryside Golf Course.

Monday night's decision allows mixed usage between residential and commercial.

Almost half of the property was has been set aside for green space.

The city stopped maintaining the 135-acre property two years ago because of economic conditions.

Ever since city and neighborhood leaders have been at odds over what to do with the property.
