EDMOND, Oklahoma -

Edmond residents have overwhelmingly voted against two measures related to rezoning and development at Spring Creek near Hafer Park.

Both the 15th and Bryant development measure and rezoning measure were voted down with 65 percent of the vote, according to unofficial election results.

Edmond City Council initially approved the rezoning and development, but more than 1,600 Edmond residents signed a petition, prompting a citywide vote.

The $150 million investment would have created 325 apartment units and 50 retail and restaurant businesses in the area.
