OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. (AP) - Olive Branch residents who live near a proposed business park are working to derail the project.

Cows now graze on the land just east of the city limits. The Commercial Appeal (https://bit.ly/1p6hF5s ) reports that developers are trying to get the property rezoned.

Area residents worried about safety, traffic and other potential changes spent the weekend gathering signatures on petitions opposed to the change.

They plan to present them to the Board of Supervisors, which scheduled to hear the rezoning application Monday morning in Hernando.

Elaine Adams has been drumming up opposition to the project through personal contacts and on Facebook.

She says increased trucking would be dangerous in the area where school buses bring Center Hill and teens drive to school.
