Eastern Hills Sold to Developer
The Kalamazoo City Commission has agreed to sell Eastern Hills Golf Course for $2.2 million to a buyer with plans to redevelop the site into commercial and residential properties. Kalamazoo commissioners unanimously approved the sale to JTM Management on Monday as they try to offset a $3 million budget deficit. The 27-hole course will continue to operate at least until this November. City officials hope to use the proceeds to pay off debt and improve the Red Arrow and Milham Park golf courses.
