What's being proposed?
A current residentially zoned property off of Littleworth road is being considered for rezoning for commercial use - specifically for a 1,500 seat baseball stadium and training center for the Seacoast Mavericks and other sports; as well as a concert venue, 4 additional baseball fields, multiple hotels, gas stations, convenience stores and more.
Check out the video below to see what happened to a quiet neighborhood after the San Diego Unified School District installed 90 foot stadium lights. This is only ONE stadium and the impacts are substantial. What do you think it will be like with the proposed USA Training Centers mega-complex in the City of Dover?
Why is this a problem?
This proposed complex abuts neighborhoods and homes along Littleworth Road, Columbus Avenue, Tolend Road, Wallace Drive, Lucy Lane and the homes at Wyndbrook off of Stocklan Circle. Aside from the obvious noise and light pollution that will travel miles from the proposed complex area, this project will cause a drop in property values, a significant increase in traffic for all surrounding neighborhoods and towns, and commercialization of quiet residential neighborhoods.
- All traffic will be on existing local roads. Most will be on Route 9 (Littleworth Road) and Columbus Avenue, but will effect all roads leading to the area
- Increased traffic on the already dangerous Exit 8 off of the Spaulding Turnpike
Noise and Nighttime Lighting
- Games (Baseball, Soccer, Lacrosse, Softball and other sports organizations) during all seasons and night concerts when games are not happening
- Each game is announced over a stadium-grade PA system
- Stadium LED lights for nighttime events will be visible for miles
