The Judge recently requested that the parties (Golf Enterprises/Newberry Township/Valley Green Residents’ Organization) explore the possibility of an out-of-court resolution. VGRO’s position on this request is that it is in the best interest of the VGRO Board, and the community in general, to participate in the discussions to see if there is a reasonable compromise that can be reached. Depending on any potential settlement, nothing would be decided unless mutually agreeable between the Township and Golf Enterprises with the input of the community. Your Valley Green Resident’s Organization will continue to keep you informed.
At a standing room only Newberry Township Board of Supervisor’s meeting this evening, the Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 to reject a zoning change proposed by Fran McNaughton and his development company, Golf Enterprises, Inc. McNaughton’s proposed change would have paved the way for the destruction of the Valley Green Golf Course and the development of more than 300 new housing units.
After a motion to reject McNaughton’s change was made by Supervisor Maxine Kauffman, three additional supervisors – Carl Hughes, Robert

Conley, and Brandt Cook – joined in support of the motion. Supervisor Ernest Helmick was the lone vote in favor of McNaughton’s proposal.
The meeting was attended by more than 100 concerned residents including many VGRO members. “This a great win for residents of Newberry Township,” said LeeAnn Menut, President of Valley Green Residents Organization (“VGRO”). “We thank the four supervisors who listened to the wishes of their community. VGRO will continue to fight in the interest of local residents for the betterment of our township.”
The Patriot-News has posted video of the hearing with their article titled, “Newberry Township supervisors put kibosh on Valley Green Golf Course rezoning.”
The York Daily Record reported, “Valley Green Golf Course will remain open space.” And the York Dispatch explained, “Newberry supervisors say no to Valley Green rezoning.”
UPDATE: WHP CBS21 has run a story last night and this morning which can be viewed here, and the York Dispatch has added “Newberry Twp. Residents Praise Supervisors’ Decision.“
Once again, by request of McNaughton and Golf Enterprises, the start date of the hearing has been rescheduled.
As a reminder, the first night of the hearing will be dedicated to McNaughton’s presentation of the Curative Amendment request and testimony from his experts. As residents, we will be able to rebut his testimony, but will not be presenting our case until the second night of the hearing – a date yet to be determined.
As the fight
continues to span across the months, it’s imperative that we don’t lose momentum, and all remain actively involved. We’re asking residents to be on hand for each night of the hearing to present a united front against the Curative Amendment and proposed rezoning. As soon as we know more about the scheduling of hearings before the Board of Supervisors, we’ll post it here and send an email out to residents.
Thank you for your continued support and the continuous calls to the following, to let them know you do not support the rezoning of the

It’s not only Newberry Township residents that recognize the importance of preserving the Township’s only designated Open Space. Adding to growing public outcry, the Patriot-News Editorial Board has voiced its opposition to McNaughton’s proposed destruction of the Valley Green Golf Course. In an editorial published today, the paper stated:
Prior generations zoned Valley Green as “open space” for a reason. They valued keeping that area green and mostly accessible to the public. It is the only official open space designation on the Newberry map. … Newberry Twp. residents and officials are asking the right questions. Is there really demand for more than 300 homes in this economy?
VGRO appreciates the well-reasoned support of the Patriot-News, and invites other editorial boards and opinion-makers to join the chorus of opposition to this disastrous development plan. We hope the Board of Supervisors recognizes the overwhelming public concern from not only their constituents, but also non-resident observers in the Mid-State area. Newberry Township should set an example

to other area localities, as the Editorial Board suggested, “to start taking a closer look at balancing development with preserving open space.”
Despite the increasing momentum we’re seeing, Newberry Township residents cannot stop the fight until this plan is defeated. Please join our effort today by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org, follow us on Twitter at @keepthecourseVG, and make sure to check our Calendar for upcoming events. We need your help more than ever as we reach the critical stages of the process!

In addition, VGRO introduced its new officers: Bill Hendrickson (President), LeeAnn Menut (Vice President), Mary Miller (Treasurer), and LeAnn Straub (Secretary). VGRO Organizer Don Noss also introduced the organization’s new Communications Director, Emily Copenhaver. A Q&A session at the conclusion of the meeting led to lively discussion among residents that included some new ideas for the effort.
Above all, residents were encouraged to continue to voice their displeasure with McNaughton’s proposal, most notably by attending public hearings, directly contacting their elected officials, and talking to neighbors. More yard signs were handed out, and we look forward to seeing them around the Township!
When Supervisor Ernest Helmick asked the crowd of more than 100 that spilled out into the hallway how many favored the project, no one raised a hand.
Let’s take a moment to reflect on that–more than 100 Newberry Township residents showed up to protest McNaughton’s plan! A huge thank you is in order to everyone who made their voices heard on Tuesday at the Municipal Building.
This showing of support to KEEP THE COURSE builds on the momentum we’ve been building in the past few weeks. And our momentum is getting noticed. Just Monday, Supervisor Maxine Kauffmann told the York Dispatch, “It’s always been a golf course. I’m so against it being anything else.”
VGRO is pleased that the Supervisors hear our concerns, and they appear to take those concerns seriously. Supervisor Kauffmann’s statement of opposition to McNaughton’s destructive proposal is particularly welcome.
However, the real measure of the Supervisors’ responsiveness will come when they take a final vote on the proposed re-zoning. Unless and until the Board of Supervisors definitively tell McNaughton, “this land will remain Open Space,” Newberry Township residents must continue this fight.
So what’s next?
1. Organizational Meeting: First,
we’re having an organizational meeting on Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Newberry Township Building on Old Trail Road. Just look for the white and green “KEEP THE COURSE” signs outside. At this meeting, we’ll tell everyone (1) where we’ve been, (2) where we’re at and what we know, and (3) what we still need to do to stop McNaughton from replacing Valley Green’s Open Space with more development.
2. YCPC Meeting: Second, our Calendar of Events has been updated to include the York County Planning Commission’s meeting on August 7th at 7:30 p.m. This meeting will be held at the York County 911 Center,
120 Davies Drive in York. According to YCPC, residents will be able to make public comments at this meeting, similarly to Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting. We know that the Board of Supervisors took us seriously because of our presence. Let’s make sure the County does the same!
At 5:30 p.m. this evening, members of the Valley Green Residents Organization (“VGRO”) will take part in the public comment portion of the Newberry Township Board of Supervisors meeting, taking place at the Township Municipal Building, 1915 Old Trail Road in Etters. We plan to publically outline many of our concerns regarding a plan submitted by McNaughton Homes to destroy the Valley Green Golf Course in order to pack over 330 new housing units on the only designated Open Space in Newberry Township.
We invite all interested Newberry Township residents to join us at the meeting to show their support for our effort to “Keep The Course” by wearing a green shirt (if you have one that’s clean) and letting the Supervisors know of your concerns. There will be an opportunity for public comment at the beginning of the meeting, according to the
posted Agenda. If you plan on making comments, please be polite,

professional and to-the-point–Valley Green residents are passionate about our community, but we also believe that yelling and screaming isn’t necessary to get our point across. But by all means, explain how concerned you are with McNaughton’s plan!
also have yard signs available, that look like the image above, which you may have already seen posted around Valley Green. Because we purchased these signs out of our own pocketbooks, we’re asking for a small donation to cover the costs. Mary Miller should have a few of these signs with her this evening if you would like to stick one on your property and tell Newberry Township to “KEEP THE COURSE!”
Please check our new Calendar of Events page for upcoming events. We’ve just added three items to this month’s calendar:
- On Monday, July 23rd at 7 p.m., the Newberry Township Zoning Hearing Board will be meeting at the Township Municipal Building on Old Trail Road.
- On Tuesday, July 24th at 5:30 p.m., the Newberry Township Board of Supervisors will be holding its regular meeting at the Municipal Building.
- On Sunday, July 29th at 3 p.m., VGRO will hold an Informational Meeting for all interested residents and other supporters at the Municipal Building.
7/23 & 7/24 Township Meetings: With regard to the Zoning Hearing Board and Board of Supervisors meetings, we need as many supporters to show up, preferably wearing green! The Board of Supervisors meetings typically allow for public comment before the board, and we would like
as many people as possible to bring their concerns before the Board regarding this proposed development. Please be courteous–our goal is to make the Board aware of our concerns regarding the increase in congestion, and the fact that the only Open Space in the Township would be destroyed
by McNaughton’s plan.
7/29 Kick-off Informational Meeting: VGRO’s Kick-off Informational Meeting will cover the following topics:
- Current status of McNaughton’s development and submissions to the Township;
- What we’ve done so far and visibility; and
- What you can do–volunteer opportunities.
This meeting is a critical
jump-start to our campaign against the destruction of the Valley Green Golf Course. At this meeting, we will outline the steps we’ll be taking to stop McNaughton’s development and collecting information and ideas from you. If you’d like to a “KEEP THE COURSE” sign in your yard, we hope to have signs available.
Please contact Mary at email@example.com if you are interested in attending any of these events. Keep checking keepthecourse.org and our Calendar of Events to stay up-to-date, and follow our Twitter feed at @keepthecourseVG to get the latest updates and news!
This is the website of the Valley Green Residents Organization (“VGRO”), a group of homeowners and residents in Newberry Township, Pennsylvania. VGRO supports the preservation of Newberry Township’s only official Open Space, and opposes the proposed development of the Valley Green Golf Course.
As stated in the Newberry Township Zoning Ordinance, at Section 2.01:

of this zoning district is to ensure that the Valley Green Golf Course continues to be the focal point of Newberry Township’s primary growth area. The golf course adds not only to the character of Newberry Township, but also to the local community that surrounds it. The Open Space district ensures the focal point of the local community and Township is protected from development, thereby protecting the character of the neighborhood and protecting the existing open space that is so integral to the Township.
If Newberry Township allows the destruction of the golf course, our neighborhoods will be flooded by runoff, our roads will be clogged with traffic, and the very focal point of Newberry Township will be lost forever.
