The Point Roberts Golf and Country Club’s residential development is proceeding more slowly than anticipated and the bond they posted to guarantee infrastructure in the development is set to expire.
The $1.4 million bond was created in March 2011, according to Roger McCarthy with Whatcom County public works, to ensure roads, the water and sewer systems, and landscaping for the project meet agreed-upon standards. “I’ve been in contact with their project manager and they will be requesting an extension,” he said, which will likely be granted. The bond is due to expire March 4.
If the bond is not extended the county can look at cashing in the bond and making the improvements themselves. “We don’t really want to go that route but it is a possibility,” he said.
Golf course manager Tad Nose and project manager Wayne Knowles did not respond to requests for an update on the status of the project.
