Prediction: Green Diamond Inevitable

‘Opinion’ at The State Newspaper Gets it Right

I don’t know much about FEMA, floodplains or Larry McNair, Jr. I do know that I have all of the confidence in the world that the project known as ‘Green Diamond’ will happen one day.

Don’t get me wrong…I’ve seen many development flops lately. For example, some developments in the Northeast section of Columbia are having a very hard time. Having said this, a development in downtown Columbia that includes a golf course could be a powerful thing. At present, the only ‘downtown’ private or semi-private golf course is Forest Lake Country Club. As most of us know, there is a multi-year waiting list to belong to Forest Lake.

For today, I’m not endorsing nor poo-pooing the project. I’m simply typing to announce that, like it or not, it’s coming.

The State Newspaper’s comment that Mr. McNair’s plan should be considered is a good way to put it. “It’s time we moved on,” is an even better phrase.

Mr. McNair should have an objective opportunity to present his plan. It could be a wonderful thing for downtown Columbia.
