City leaders in Green are considering the purchase of a 140-acre golf course – but whether it remains a golf course is up for discussion.

The city is looking at acquiring Raintree Country Club from its elderly owner for more than $3 million, and preserving it as green space. The land is currently zoned residential.

The facility includes a driving range and the largest banquet hall in the city. City spokeswoman Valerie Wolford says they’d get an outside company to run both.

A landowner in the city of Green told the Akron Beacon Journal that construction of the Nexus natural gas pipeline polluted a pond and wetlands on his property.

According to the report, construction is happening across the front of the family’s property and includes a process called dewatering.

The city of Green is hoping to reopen a section of S. Arlington Road by Friday after construction of the Nexus Pipeline caused part of it to collapse.

City engineer Paul Pickett says a boring machine caused the incident. He says that any underground project might run into problems like this, especially when soil conditions are unknown.

The caretakers of a sensitive wetland in Summit County are responding to the deal reached this week between the city of Green and a gas pipeline company.

The settlement with Nexus Gas Transmission allows for the resumption of construction of a pipeline through 1.3 acres of Singer Lake Bog.

The largest prehistoric bog in Ohio was purchased by the Cleveland Museum of Natural History in 1999.
