Jeff Varela has submitted what he calls a "credible, seven-digit" offer for the 80-acre golf course, just days before city officials will vote to decide the golf course's fate.
Days before the Eagan City Council is expected to vote on the controversial Parkview Golf Course redevelopment proposal, another buyer has stepped forward with an offer to purchase the property and preserve it as a golf course. Longtime Eagan resident Jeff Varela said on Friday that he has made a "credible, seven-digit offer" for the 80-acre, 18-hole golf course, which is at the center of a hot debate over property use. Varela said he plans to operate a family-run golf course on the property, if the current property owners agree to take his offer. Varela isn't the only one with eyes on the golf course property, which sits near the intersection of Pilot Knob Road and Cliff Road in southern Eagan. Eden Prairie-based developer Hunter Emerson …

The owner of the Lockheed Martin site unveiled its plans in front of several dozen area residents and officials at a Wednesday evening meeting in Eagan.
The developers of the Lockheed Martin property unveiled their plans for a 510,000-square-foot retail complex in front of an alternately warm and cold audience on Wednesday night.
