Valentine ED Looks at Housing
Tuesday, 30 August 2016 09:17
The Valentine Economic Development Board met on Monday evening for a regular meeting. The board continues to discuss workforce housing which has been an issue for the community for several years. Workforce housing is described as housing for people who are in the local workforce, but may not be able to afford current market housing. The economic development board will explore opportunities to work with developers to aid in efforts to build more single family housing units or affordable rental properties.
A reminder that the local ED board also can assist with financing of a business purchase, expansion or start up business. The local funds can provide gap financing to supplement traditional bank financing. Interested individuals should contact Mike Burge at 402 376 6842 for information.
Frederick Peak Golf Club Making Good Progress
Tuesday, 30 August 2016 09:15
The Valentine Golf course development board continues to make great progress on the new community golf course on the northeast edge of Valentine. Several volunteers have been assisting the grounds crew to help get construction completed for a projected opening in the spring of 2017. Course superintendent Tad Buechle reports that the course is improving everyday and work is progressing on cart paths and grooming.
The golf board continues to move forward on a clubhouse, with a plan for a 2,400 square foot structure that would hold about 100 people. Local contractors are reviewing plans on construction. It is hoped to have a structure enclosed for winter.
The girls high school golf team has been utilizing part of the course for practices this year. They have access to the driving range, practice putting green and two golf holes.
