Usually golf courses and senior citizen living options go together. Generally, though, they don’t share the same land. Due to increasing water supply issues, the Bottle Creek Golf Course could see a new life as an aging-in-place residential area if the city approves zoning changes. As general manager Mary Rentfro says, “There isn’t sufficient water for us to sustain a golf course.” After meeting with neighbors and discussing options the senior residential development emerged as the most popular idea. The golf course would turn into a mix of single-family dwellings and park areas. A care facility would also be built to assist older citizens, allowing residents to remain in their neighborhood even as their needs change, says Rentfro. After applying for a zone change this spring, owner Terry Kelly now must wait for the city’s approval before beginning a subdivision application.
A 146-acre site remains up for grabs after Wal-Mart declined to build a warehouse on state-owned Mill Creek land. Wal-Mart, which would have spent $140,000 per acre for the lot, would have been one of the first companies to begin developing at Mill Creek. Of the 650 acres, 515 are available for purchase, the rest set aside as a wetlands park. According to city manager Bob Wells, while the area is surplus state land it remains within the city’s urban renewal area. Salem will provide the infrastructure necessary for development such as water connections and streets.

This Roundtable will cover numerous issues under the employer "shared responsibility" rules of the Affordable Care Act, including how to track the "full-time" status of variable-hour employees, temporary or seasonal employees, and employees who experience a change in status or a break in service. Additionally, we will provide a brief overview of Code sections 6055 and 6056, which require most mid-sized and large employers to submit their first information reports to the IRS in early 2016 regarding the health insurance coverage being offered to employees. We invite you to participate in an interactive discussion on how to prepare for the future impact of the shared responsibility rules on your operations and finances.
