PORT LUDLOW — Port Ludlow Associates announced Friday that it is dropping a proposed plan for golf and marina club members that drew heated opposition.
Under the proposal for the Club at Ludlow Bay, current and new club members would have paid deposits of as much as $22,500 to finance a new clubhouse and other improvements.
Community members were upset the plan put money in the hands of Port Ludlow Associates without a guarantee a new clubhouse would be built, and a complaint was filed with the state Department of Financial Institutions asking that the proposal be investigated.
Port Ludlow Associates President Greg McCarry said even though the company had reached an understanding with the state agency about “what was an acceptable change” to the proposal, the negative community reaction to the program is the main reason it was withdrawn.
