FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Dozens of people are fighting the proposed redevelopment of a golf course in northern Allen County.

Nearly 30 people were at the Allen County Planning Commission's public hearing to speak against rezoning the Cedar Creek Golf Club.

The owners of the club want to sell the 116 acre course to developer Roger Delagrange.

Delagrange will then turn it into a 120 housing addition.

"We moved to the area because it was nice quiet community," said Tom Blee.

Blee lives around the corner from the proposed Tullymore Run.

He said he doesn't want 120 houses on the golf course because the roads can't handle extra traffic, which could be dangerous for his kids.

"My daughter gets on the bus to Leo Elementary and there is a blind hill on both sides of the bus stop," said Blee.

Delegrange told the county planning commission his proposal makes sense because 170 students from outside East Allen County Schools attend Leo schools.

"They do that in order to go to capacity. As the Leo system will grow, there will be fewer people coming from the outside in," said Delegrange.

The Allen County Planning Commission plans to vote on the rezoning of this golf course during next week's meeting.

It's Thursday at 1 p.m. inside Citizens Square.
