All one has to do is pay attention to our nation’s ongoing 2016 presidential elections and it’s pretty clear these are crazy times we are living in. So crazy that it’s not impossible the bid NCM Motorsports Park is undertaking to settle the dispute with neighboring residents over noise complaints could culminate with the racetrack repurposed to host noiseless events such as mime festivals or Gallaudet College reunions.
Laura Gilbert of Bowling Green, Kentucky, has drafted an online petition that can be signed by NCM supporters worldwide to help illustrate how important the National Corvette Museum and the track are to the Bowling Green community and its economy. In an interview with the Bowling Green Daily News Gilbert stated, “The folks at NCM have lent a hand and we started the petition. It’s really important people understand what the NCM means for Bowling Green. We have a lot of support here in Bowling Green but, honestly, a lot from the folks all over. These are people who love coming here and spend money here.”
The petition will allow folks who may not be local to the area to show their support after the City-County Planning Commission of Warren County announced that it will table its decision in order to flesh out more information, and before Warren District Judge John Brown makes his decision regarding NCM’s appeal. The appeal reads:
We support the NCM Motorsports Park and want it to be successful as long as the neighbors’ ability to enjoy their homes and properties is not adversely affected. Therefore, we support the park’s request for an Amended Detailed Development Plan from the City-County Planning Commission to develop noise abatement structures to further protect neighbors. Moreover, we believe that the National Corvette Museum and NCM Motorsports Park are assets to the community as demonstrated by the $35 million in economic benefits they generate for the City of Bowling Green. We applaud their efforts to serve as a good corporate citizen and neighbor, and urge the favorable consideration of their application.
