A Warren County resident who has been fighting a legal battle with Beech Bend Park has filed another lawsuit against the park’s owner and two county officials.
Matt Baker filed the suit in Warren Circuit Court Friday, Sept. 1, 2006. The complaint cites Warren County Judge Mike Buchanon, Bowling Green/Warren County Planning and Zoning Commission Director Andy Gillies and Dallas Jones, the owner of Beech Bend Park.
In the document it states that Beech Bend Park has not complied with current zoning ordinances that show the park to be operating on land zoned for agricultural use. Baker is requesting that Beech Bend Park cease and desist all operations as an amusement park, campground and raceway.
He is seeking compensatory and punitive damages accusing Beech Bend of depriving him of the enjoyment of his property.
