SIOUX FALLS (AP) - Residents of a quiet Sioux Falls neighborhood are worrying about a new industrial park encroaching on their properties.

The Argus Leader reports that many residents living near Foundation Park have expressed concerns about increased traffic, road damage and obstructed views. But the Sioux Falls Development Foundation says the area is a prime spot for industry.

The 820-acre (332-hectare) industrial park currently has just one tenant, a refrigerated storage company called Win Chill. But Foundation Park is expected to fill up, and trucking company Dakota Carriers is already on the way.

Patti Guthrie lives near the industrial park. She's worried about the traffic and loud noises from heavy industrial work.

Foundation President Dean Dziedzic says the development group is trying to address residents' concerns within reason.
