Joint Powers Board Forms Task Force to Look at Three Crowns Losses
The Three Crowns Golf Course on the former Amoco refinery site has lost, and continues to lose, hundreds of thousands of dollars a year since it opened in 2005.
The Amoco Reuse Agreement Joint Powers Board, which oversees the development of the site now known as the Platte River Commons, has subsidized the course from the limited funds it has to last until the end of the century.
This won’t work indefinitely, and board chairman Bryce Row said he wants answers.
“What’s on the table? That’s everything,” he said.
Last month, the board authorized the creation of a task force to figure out what to do. According to the minutes from the March 12 meeting, the task force is composed of three representatives of the board and two members of Three Crowns LLC. The ARAJPB members are Jerad Stack acting as the chairman, Neil Benton and Brandon Daigle. The two members from Three Crowns are Doug Follick and Edie Hardy, according to the minutes.
“We will leave no stone unturned,” Row said.
