DYERSVILLE (KWWL) -
A judge decided to reject a petition that would further slow plans for the Field of Dreams movie site expansion project.
A Chicago-based development company plans to buy the Field of Dreams movie site and expand it into a 24-field youth softball and baseball tournament complex.
After the Dyersville city council voted in August to change the site's zoning from agricultural to commercial, a group of area residents who oppose the expansion took action.
In September, the group presented a petition of the city council's re-zoning decision. However, a Judge Thomas Bitter denied that writ petition on Tuesday, according to attorney Douglas Henry, who represented the city of Dyersville at the hearing last month.
This allows the development company to proceed with closing the deal with the current Field of Dreams owners.
This fall, Hall of Fame baseball player Wade Boggs announced he's investing in the project.
