Club Spring Mountain News - September 2019

New Reasons for Excitement at the Club

Acquisitions, Expansion and Change on the Horizon

01 carsAfter a summer of growth and progress, we are happy to welcome Club members back for the 2019 Fall racing season. Our 866-acre driver's paradise is on the brink of the most significant growth in our history, and we are bursting with news about land acquisitions, track expansion, and monumental changes to the skyline at the facility. In June we celebrated our 15-year anniversary at an event in the Clubhouse with the people who made it happen - our valued members. Our hard-working staff worked tirelessly to ensure a memorable party for everyone and we are grateful for their loyalty and support.

This special award was created to celebrate club members who exemplify the spirit of Spring Mountain through their words, their actions, and their contributions to the club. Jeffrey Cheng and Doug Ramirez have been a part of the Club Spring Mountain family for nearly our entire history. Both have referred more members to the Club than any other individuals, and they have gone above and beyond in support of the organization. We honor Jeffrey and Doug for the huge impact they have had on our success, and we are grateful for the loyalty and support of all our valued Club Spring Mountain members.

Acquisition of Two Parcels from BLM

Expansion Plans in Progress for Adjacent Land

07 mapRecently we announced the successful close of escrow on 553.27 acres of property directly adjacent to the facility. The parcel, identified as phase one of a two-part sale from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM,) was awarded by modified competitive sealed-bid sale. Last week, Spring Mountain was awarded the bid for the second phase of 67 acres which is expected to close in 2020, bringing the total size of the facility to 933 acres.

Improvements on the property are in the planning stages, beginning with a 3.2-mile track extension, new buildings and a paddock area for track operations. With this addition, Spring Mountain can run more track configurations and long track variations for driving school operations, track rentals and corporate events, with the longest course estimated to total 9 miles in length. Eventually, phase two will include yet another track extension of 7 miles, which will make Spring Mountain home to the longest road course in the world.

Our expansion is a testament to the loyalty of our Club members and friends across the country, and we are thankful for your support.

Water & Sewer Treatment Plant Receives State Approval

$13.7M Project Serves Spring Mountain Estates, Commercial & Surrounding Areas

08 water treatmentSpring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club recently received its Permit to Operate a Public Water System from the Division of Environmental Protection Bureau of Safe Drinking Water. After years of planning, construction and governmental red-tape, the newly permitted $13.7 Million Water and Sewer Treatment plant will serve Spring Mountain Estates, the Commercial development and surrounding areas.

09 commercialThe approval paves the way for significant growth beginning soon. Major changes are planned at the front entrance, with our commercial development poised to begin construction. Conditional use permits for a 125-room 5-story Marriott Hotel, Casino, Starbucks and two additional restaurant pads were applied for this summer by Majestic Properties. The $67M site plan will be submitted to the county in November, followed by construction starts, and we are thrilled to offer our members more options for recreation, dining and entertainment at the facility.
