Javanon Soccer Building Approved

The divisive Javanon Soccer Complex in southeast Louisville has again been given zoning approval, this time legally so. But the fight over the building isn't over.The indoor soccer building was built after its building permit was mistakenly issued in 2007. In April of this year, the Metro Louisville Board of Zoning issued the proper approvals for the building, but in the process they had violated open meetings laws.The decision was nullified and has since been re-made legally, but the soccer club isn't in the clear yet.Attorney Steve Porter represents the Tucker Station Neighborhood Association. He says the building isn't illegal, but it is an eyesore and should never have been approved."If it'd gone through the process without being built, I think that they would have required them to make the building fit in with the neighborhood better," he says. "Since it was already built, they just decided there wasn't anything they could do."Porter says his clients could appeal the zoning board's decision. They have 30 days to do so.
