I don't work too much on the front end of projects so I don't remember all the rules, but I am not sure developing the golf course is still possible. Almost the entire golf course is in the flood plain and I think the rules have changed and you can only fill (raise the ground out of the flood plain) a small part of that. For some reason I am thinking its around 20%. If that's the case, 80% of the golf course would still need remain in the flood plain. Parking Lots can be in the flood plain, but buildings can not, or you need really expensive flood insurance.
Looking at the flood map, all of west side of the 90th and Center development is in the flood plain too, may be that's the hold-up?
