Board delays ruling on Kinnick inspired house
IOWA CITY (AP) — The Iowa City Board of Adjustment has again 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 after an earlier vote delay, but now the decision 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.
Reed Carlson said he’s willing to work with neighbors and the city on revisions to the home plans.
