BERLIN – In spite of recent rumors regarding the Bay Club’s future as a campground, its connections say nothing is set in stone.
“They haven’t done anything formally,” said Hugh Cropper, the attorney investigating the redevelopment of the golf course for the Carl M. Freeman Companies.
Berlin Mayor Gee Williams said this week that in a recent town council executive session, staff informed town leaders that the Bay Club would be applying to Worcester County for the special exception needed for a campground. Williams said the news was only shared for informational purposes.
“They haven’t asked us for anything so far,” he said.
Cropper said Wednesday that while turning the Bay Club into a campground had been discussed by the property’s owners, no decision had been made. He said he was simply exploring potential uses for the 36-hole golf course.
