Lawsuit over planned sports complex reaches trial

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (AP) - The trial over plans to develop a sports complex at the "Field of Dreams" movie site in eastern Iowa is underway.

   Neighboring landowners filed the lawsuit to challenge the way city officials decided to rezone the area around the site for commercial use. The trial began last Monday and was expected to last seven days.

   Opponents of the All-Star Ballpark Heaven project worry about the increased traffic and noise that would accompany the planned complex of youth sports fields.

   The opponents say the city of Dyersville failed to consider the project's negative impact on neighbors and didn't follow proper procedure for the 2012 zoning decision.

   But Dyersville attorney Doug Henry says the city council didn't do anything wrong.
