Elkwood residents are fired up over a proposed development of 240 acres in Elkton. The developer hasn't provided a master plan yet, but the quiet neighborhood says apartment buildings, gas stations and other stores could be on their way.

Jennifer Dean, Elkwood Resident says, "Here in my backyard, to the back and side of me, when you talk about building those kinds of things, it interrupts traffic patterns."

Neighbors fear twice as much traffic and other safety hazards. There's already been two deaths at the only entrance to the subdivision.

A community group is voicing its opposition to Elkwood's growth and demanding the curbs, gutters and sidewalks it's been promised for years.
