'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The owner of Glengarry Golf Links asked Unity supervisors Tuesday to approve a request to rezone a portion of the golf course and his property to allow for more parking.

Gary Nese, president of Alta Mira Golf Links Inc., parent firm of the golf course, told the supervisors at a public hearing on the requests that he wants to change the zoning on a 7.6-acre parcel at his residence at 1039 Victoria Lane from a residential-2 classification to an agricultural classification.

At the golf course, Nese wants to change a 1.76-acre parcel from an agricultural designation to a residential-2 classification and then subdivide the parcel from the course. William Koch, golf course superintendent, lives in a farmhouse on the course property, Nese said, and if Alta Mira were to sell the golf course, the zoning change would enable Koch to continue to live at the house.

“He has lived there over 35 years,” Nese said.

Nese said he wants to change the zoning for the house owned by his stepson, Paul Ulyas, from a residential-2 classification to an agricultural designation.

By having the two houses rezoned for agricultural purposes, Nese said he could create additional parking for the golf course.

When two events occur at the course and clubhouse, there have been many occasions when there is overflow parking at the golf course and some patrons resort to parking along the road, Nese said.

The supervisors may vote on the proposed zoning amendments at the board's Feb. 14 meeting, said Michael O'Barto, township supervisor.
