AVON, OH (WOIO) -

Avon Oaks Country Club has sent a letter to nearby residents this week concerning their desire to put a dome over the tennis courts. It's a idea that has been unpopular among residents.

According to the letter, residents have two options. If the city allows the dome, the tennis courts will stay where they currently are and several mature trees will remain in place to provide natural cover.

If the city does not permit the dome, the country club will build the tennis courts further east on their property. The move will involve removing pine trees and brush.

Residents in nearby Willow Creek are not pleased with the country club's push to have the dome built, and are concerned about their property values.
