Developer backs out of Lincoln Country Club project

The proposed project would have rezoned the golf course into apartments, condos, senior living, and more.

WALKER, Mich. — Stoneleigh Companies LLC withdrew its request to rezone Lincoln Country Club this week. The original proposal to the planning commission would have paved the way for the golf course to become an apartment complex, condos, senior living units and a park area.

The rezoning issue will still be on the planning commission’s agenda at their meeting next week because it was already made public. Community development director Frank Walsh said he is asking the commission to quickly and formally close the file.
