A number of residents of condominiums at the Black Creek development in Lookout Valley expressed opposition on Monday to plans for 13 new units that will be for short-term vacation rentals as well as another 13 single-family homes clustered nearby.
One resident said condo owners had been promised they would retain an unobstructed view of the driving range and clubhouse area.
Condo residents also had concerns about noise from the rental units, saying those renters would likely often be in a party mood.
An architect on the project said it had always been planned to extend Cummings Cove Drive and build additional units.
He said the rentals are part of a reciprocal program with other golf courses around the country.
A Planned Unit Development was being sought for the new homes in order to be able to cluster them and leave a couple of acres of open space, it was stated.
Planning Commission member Don Moon said the issue of whether the condo owners had been promised perpetual views was a consideration in the matter, but could not be worked out by the Planning Commission.
The commission deferred the cases for a month and directed that there be an informational meeting with the condo owners.
