A group of citizens has formed South Suburbs for Greenspace over Concrete to argue against the proposed development of a distribution warehouse at the former Calumet Country Club in Homewood. 

SSGOC operates as a campaign of Illinois Southland Against Fossil Fuel Energy, which opposed a natural-gas power plant in Glenwood. The developer backed out of that project in 2019.
