OSU Responds to July 2006 WOOSE Report, WOOSE Releases Supplement
Posted Mon Sep 18, 2006 10:53 pm UTC

On July 5th WOOSE released a 52 page report on the implications of OSU's plans for the Don Scott
Field Area surrounding their airport. University representatives have called the report inaccurate
and misleading.

After being challenged to back their criticism of the report, OSU has issued a two page response.

While we appreciate that OSU's response acknowledged some of the report's recommendations, overall
we found their response to be incomplete and in some cases inaccurate.

Therefore, we have published a supplement to our July report containing OSU's response and our
comments to clarify or amplify the issues originally raised. Both the original report and the
supplement are available at www.WOOSE.org and again will be made available at local libraries.

While the noise issues at the airport are important, they the are not the only issues worthy of
consideration. There are larger issues of land use and management that should be of interest to all
Ohio taxpayers, not just those concerned about the airport or development of the land surrounding
it.

Unfortunately, OSU has chosen not to consider most of these issues. We hope the WOOSE report and its
supplement will help open a dialog to discuss these important topics in the near future.

Finally, we note that OSU has yet to respond to the first WOOSE Report published in February of
2005. Although some things have changed significantly since that time, we hope the University will
provide a thoughtful response to the issues it raised.
