As designed, the new facility will exceed the height restrictions of the R-20 (Residential Single Family) zone in which the park is located. The height restriction is 34 feet and he new building tops out at 36 feet and 3.5 inches. Apparently the steel has already ordered for the building and the cost to modify it to comply with the height restriction would be in excess of $150,000.00.
The County has requested a variance on for the Meadowbrook Park Indoor Sports Facility. If the variance is granted by the council in October, construction could begin by the end of this year.
