Iowa Supreme Court upholds rezoning of Field of Dreams site

DES MOINES (AP) -

An Iowa Supreme Court ruling has cleared the way for a baseball complex at the Field of Dreams site in Dyersville, upholding a lower court's ruling that the City Council acted properly when it rezoned the property from agricultural to commercial.

Friday's high court ruling came on an appeal by some Dyersville residents who object to the City Council's decisions in 2012 and 2013 approving the rezoning. The move paved the way for the planned development of a 24-field youth baseball and softball complex, but petitioners feared the complex would cause disruptions to farm operations and traffic.

Friday's opinion says the council "weighed all the information, reports and comments available to it in order to determine whether rezoning was in the best interest of the city as a whole."
