WOOSE (We Oppose Ohio State airport Expansion) is a group of concerned citizens from all neighborhoods surrounding the airport who question the need for expansion of the airport and its runways. We believe the airport has a detrimental effect on property values and our quality of life. Our goal is to find solutions to the current noise problems and find a way for the airport to serve its academic mission in a manner compatible with surrounding communities.
