Hollywood mayor Peter Bober is quashing fears that developers will build at Sunset Golf Course, which is now closed.

The mayor put his opposition into writing, saying that he will not support any development on the site, according to Sun-Sentinel.

“I’ve never written a letter like that,” Bober said. “But I don’t think we’ve had an issue like this before, where we’ve had an incredible historic piece of green space that’s been threatened.”

Rumors recently sprung up that a developer was contemplating bringing 250 apartments and 150 single-family homes to the site at 2727 Johnson Street.

Despite Bober’s vow, locals remain concerned.

“Not everybody necessarily follows what the mayor says,” said Cliff Germano, president of the Hollywood North Central Civic Association. “I think it’s a step in the right direction. Everybody is happy that at least temporarily this project is not going to move forward.” [Sun-Sentinel]Christopher Cameron
