Neighbors file lawsuit against National Corvette Museum

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- The National Corvette Museum and neighbors living near the new motorsports park plan to settle their dispute in court.

Thursday night another group decided to join the suit on the side of the neighbors.The city-county planning commission of Warren County voted unanimously to join the Residents Against Motorsports Park Noise in their lawsuit.

The suit filed is seeking to shut down the track and also asks for compensation for the people in the group living near the park.

The National Corvette Museum said it's doing everything it can to curb the noise levels that have caused the disagreement.

"We've been working hard to come into compliance with that. That included building the berm that is now complete. That included building some trees, that's now complete. That included putting up some noise abatement near the edge of the property that is now complete," said National Corvette Museum Executive Director, Wendell Strode.

WBKO reached out to Residents Against Motorsports Track Noise along with their attorney. The group declined to comment on the issue.

We also tried to contact executive director of planning and zoning Steven Hunter but weren't able to get in touch.

No court date has been set.
