Talks over noise levels continue between the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park and its neighbors, according to Bowling Green attorney Frank “Hamp” Moore.
Moore gave the City-County Planning Commission of Warren County a brief update during a meeting last week at City Hall in Bowling Green.
“We are hopeful that the parties agree,” Moore said.
A trial before Warren Circuit Judge John Grise is set for Nov. 1. Moore said if the parties reach an agreement before then, it would have to come before the planning commission for its recommendation to Warren County Fiscal Court.
The negotiations are a result of complaints by residents living in nearby Clark Circle, who have formed a group called Residents Against Motorsports Track Noise LLC to combat what they call excessive noise created by vehicles at the park.
The motorsports park counterargues that studies by a consulting firm that deals with noise analysis found mostly small increases in noise levels that were not “substantial,” according to definitions by the Federal High way Administration.
The November jury trial would consider possible monetary damages incurred by Clark Circle homeowners because of the vehicle noise. Judge Grise earlier nixed a temporary restraining order sought by the residential group to shut down the park.
