A group of residents and businesses opposed to a racetrack at Cooper Stadium recently released its full sound study.

A group of residents and businesses opposed to a racetrack at Cooper Stadium recently released its full sound study.

Last week, Redevelop Our Area Responsibly Columbus (ROAR) released a 172-page sound study to the public. The group had previously released a summary of the report.

ROAR opposes the track that Arshot Investment Corp. wants to build. Members of the group are concerned the project would harm the area, particularly through noise generated at racing events.
Some expressed fears that a track would diminish the quality of life in the area and decrease property values.

According the summary, undertaken by a group called the Noise Consultancy, the racetrack would result in moderate to severe noise in locations up to 4,000 feet from the stadium, 1125 W. Mound St.
But Joe Sugar, Arshot attorney, said the study was premature and that his company is working to mitigate any noise.
