IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Neighboring property owners have filed an appeal with Iowa City Board of Adjustment in an effort to stop an Iowa City couple’s plans to build a home designed to resemble Kinnick Stadium.

The Press-Citizen reports (https://icp-c.com/29aFTx2 ) that the appeal was filed Wednesday by the Neighbors of Manville Heights Association and property owners in the area.

Reed and Sandy Carlson have filed building plans for a nearly 7,500-square-foot house that would echo the stadium architecture.

City officials recently issued a building permit, determining that, despite the size and appearance of the proposed building, the Carlsons’ intention to use the house as a single-family home is allowed.

The Board of Adjustment is scheduled to discuss the appeal on Aug. 10.
