The city of Prince George, Canada, council has voted down an application to re-zone the former Yellowhead Golf Course on Highway 16 to make way for an RV sales and service business.

After a lengthy public hearing this weekend, residents expressed a litany of concerns ranging from safety of children walking to Vanway School to the reduction of property values with an RV sales business in their neighborhood, CKPG-TV reports.

The proponent planned to build an 11-acre RV sales and service business, with access to the former golf course site from both Bunce Road and Leland Road.

But a number of neighborhood residents expressed a litany of concerns over a lengthy public hearing. The concerns ranged from the safety of children walking to and from Vanway School every day to concerns over weight restrictions for that road and the narrowness of the road to accommodate larger vehicles.

Council members praised the work of the proponent, Woody’s RV, to address the residents’ concerns, which even suggested a solution would be access to the site from Highway 16. However, staff told council the ministry has already dismissed that as a possibility.
