BRUNSWICK HILLS TOWNSHIP, Ohio — Some Brunswick Hills township homeowners raised their concerns about a proposal to turn Cossett Creek Golf Course into a subdivision that includes a condo complex and more than 500 new homes.

Residents told township trustees the project would create more traffic issues, potential problems with over-crowding at Brunswick Schools, water supply concerns and worries about storm water run-off.

Brunswick Hills resident, Don Elwood told News 5 he's hoping township leaders will say no the the rezoning for the golf course.

“There's not enough water for the whole township, it’s just not going to work," Elwood said.

"And everybody is complaining about the traffic.”

“With all the new homes and side streets, these people are going to be trapped. If there’s a fire, they’re not going to be able to get out of here.”

Terry Properties told News 5 all traffic concerns will be analyzed and addressed, and said the project will provide an increased tax base, greater variety of homes and set-up a neighborhood trail system.

Cossett Creek golf course management told News 5 no formal offer has been given to the property owners, and said it will keep the golf course in Brunswick Hills as long as residents support its operation.

The township zoning board is expected to decide on re-zoning the golf course during a Nov. 7 meeting.

Residents like Stephanie Roksandich hope township leaders will choose in their favor.

“Listen to your residents, we don’t want this," Roksandich said.

"We had an over-flow meeting that expressed their dislike for this plan."
