Lawsuit Over House Modeled After Kinnick Stadium Dismissed

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Neighbors who had sued to try to prevent an Iowa City couple from building a nearly 7,500-square-foot home modeled after the University of Iowa’s Kinnick Stadium say they will not appeal last week’s dismissal of the lawsuit.

The lawsuit was dismissed on March 16 after a judge found no issue with the city issuing a building permit for the house.

The house Reed and Sandy Carlson plan to build will look like the Hawkeyes’ 87-year-old stadium, complete with brick siding and a replica of the press box.

Neighbors have expressed concern about the home’s size and the potential for big parties, as well as drainage, fire safety and traffic issues.
