WC lawmakers considering buying country club

Dozens of White Plains residents crowded into city council chambers last night to learn more about a proposed plan to purchase a country club with taxpayer money.

The city's commissioner of parks and recreation says they could turn the 128-acre site, which comes with a golf course, pool and clubhouse, into a first-class municipal recreation center.

Leaders say the center would be open to White Plains residents like the public golf courses currently in Eastchester and Rye.

Mayor Adam Bradley did not say when or how soon the council would make a decision on the matter, but simply stated they would take the public comments under advisement and act accordingly.
