HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - Dartmouth College’s proposal to build a $17.5 million athletic facility has been denied.

Hanover’s planning board on Tuesday voted to reject the college’s proposal to build a 70,000-square-foot practice facility.

The board says the complex isn’t in compliance with the town’s site plan regulations.

Dartmouth has said the practice facility would allow its athletes to practice regardless of weather. The college says athletes have to be able to walk to practice and it can’t relocate the facility.

The school says it complies with zoning code.

Neighbors opposed the project, citing concerns that it would “harm the character” of the area and would lower property values.

The college says it awaits a written decision from the planning board and is reviewing its options. It can appeal the decision.
