ADM wants to expand its rail yard. Homeowners nearby are afraid the area will be too noisy and lower property values.
"I know that the city is concerned about the economy, you know jobs leaving, and everything else but, it kind of reminds me of the old west when the big land owners got to tell everybody what to do until somebody come riding in saying it's not right," said Sadona Maulden.
ADM is also interested in buying a park across the street from Maulden's home. The park district says a decision will be made in the coming weeks.
