KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) - Backers of a proposed Kona raceway are pushing for the state to pay for an economic impact study after a sound study showed the park would have minimal impact on neighbors.

West Hawaii Today reports (https://bit.ly/1KFSe7C ) that the Hawaii Racing Association will meet with council members and parks and recreation officials in hopes that the county will pay for a study to see how much revenue the Kona Motorsport Park could generate. The study is estimated to cost more than $20,000.

Racing enthusiasts have been trying to build the park for two decades, starting in 1994. The proposed park would have courses and trails for trucks, all-terrain vehicles and motorcycles and would also provide a venue for concerts and car shows.

However some neighbors are unconvinced by the sound study and still don’t want the project in their backyard.
