Lawsuit over house modeled after Kinnick Stadium dismissed

Posted: Updated:

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Neighbors who had sued to try to prevent an Iowa City couple from building a nearly 7,500-square-foot home modeled after Kinnick Stadium say they will not appeal last week's dismissal of the lawsuit.

The Press-Citizen reports ( ) that the lawsuit was dismissed on March 16 after a judge found no issue with the city issuing a building permit for the house.

The house Reed and Sandy Carlson plan to build will look like the Hawkeyes' 87-year-old stadium, complete with brick siding and a replica of the press box.

Neighbors have expressed concern about the home's size, the potential for big parties, as well as drainage, fire safety and traffic issues.
