Expansion of Prairiewood would disrupt quiet rural area

By Letters to the Editor

There is a facility in our neighborhood called Prairiewood Retreat. It sits on the top of a hill and is a retreat for small gatherings. This week we received notice from the Riley County Planning Board of a C-PUD, which is a Commercial Planned Unit Development, for Prairiewood. The owners want to expand the now small retreat into a party house for up to 75 people, and the barn is being remodeled to hold 295 people.
