  • The Capano Management Group will go public with plans to redevelop the Pike Creek Bowling Alley site at a meeting of the Pike Creek Valley Civic League on Monday, Jan. 19.
    The site currently is deed restricted to permit only a recreation or sports use there, but PCVCL President Jeff Peters said he is expecting Capano to propose a commercial center instead.
    “Nobody, including us, has been able to come up with what might be a commercially viable recreation use, so they’re going to be seeking our permission to develop it as a commercial space,” he said.
    Peters said the resident needs to see details of the plan, but said under the right circumstances, the community could agree to waive the deed restriction.
    Attorney William Rhodunda, who is representing Capano, said current plans call for a town center that would feature a grocery store and upscale restaurant.
    "That's a very worn site and the bowling business just isn't a very good business to be in right now, so we're trying to move forward with something that's going to get that site back in excellent condition," he said.
    The Jan. 19 meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the Skyline United Methodist Church’s downstairs chapel.
