The Heath Golf & Yacht Club, an 800-acre master planned community, moved a step closer to reality this week with a letter from Mayor John Ratcliffe to Texas Rep. Jodie Laubenberg.
The letter, discussed at the Heath City Council’s Tuesday night meeting, seeks Laubenberg’s assistance with and sponsorship of legislation creating a municipal management district in Heath.
“There are so many issues to work through,” developer Robert Whittle said Wednesday. “This is the first of many of those steps. But we’re making progress.”

“It will have all the best qualities of a resort community, with all the best qualities of a residential community,” Whittle said.
