Iowa City board delays ruling on Kinnick Stadium-style house

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (AP) -

The Iowa City Board of Adjustment has delayed a ruling on whether to let a couple build a 7,500-square-foot home designed to resemble Kinnick Stadium.

An appeal of the city's building permit was scheduled for a vote Wednesday night but now has been delayed until next Wednesday.

A group called the Neighbors of Manville Heights Association and property owners in the area are appealing the city's June issuance of the permit to Reed and Sandy Carlson. The opponents have cited the home's size, the potential for big parties, as well as concerns about drainage, fire safety and erosion.

The board has the final say over matters of zoning, variances and permits, unless someone takes the board to court over its decision.
