Owner Brett Oakley was seeking the zone change for 227.5 acres on the north side of Thomas Road, east of Ohio 4, and west of Franklin-Madison Road. The project was to include a family entertainment facility, campground, water parks, hotel, an outdoor adventure area, amusement rides and other entertainment activities.
Madison Twp. Trustees Alan Daniel and Brian McGuire issued a letter of opposition to the Rural Zoning Commission. Speaking for the township, Daniel said Thomas Road would “be negatively affected by increased traffic jabs and road blockage, excessive wear and tear, and smooth access to Route 4.”
