The company preparing a Fountains Country Club golf course for a residential development has promised to better protect the health of residents from unacceptable levels of dust.
“If we can make things better, we will,” said Jonathan Grebow, president of New Jersey-based Ridgewood Real Estate Partners, a company that specializes in golf-course conversions.
Ridgewood needs to remediate the soil at the shuttered golf course to bring arsenic levels to acceptable levels before apartments and townhouses can be built on what was once fairways.
At issue is the amount of dust being generated. Some residents say they are experiencing respiratory problems.
