Lighting, traffic and noise. Three things many residents in Davenport's 4th Ward don't want.
Now a local college's plans are causing a lot of worry.
Unease surrounds the idea of building a new football stadium at St. Ambrose University.
Monday night, city leaders and residents met to discuss the process.
"The city hasn't heard anything official so what I want to do is give the neighbors a chance to understand how the institutional rezoning process works," says Alderman Ray Ambrose.
Alderman Ambrose says there has been a lot of talk going around and he wanted to straighten it out.
"Rumor is that they're looking to build a stadium behind Trinity and Assumption High School and some of the homes up there, and that's going to have a huge impact on the neighborhoods and the church."
He says the city is making St. Ambrose go above and beyond what the regular zoning process calls for, including notifying all residents within 500 feet, 60 days before they can even apply for the new zoning. But residents like Jim Welch, say no matter how much warning they're given, they don't like it.
"We'd like to see the stadium rethought at a little different location. Certainly the implications are that it has the potential to lower our property values."
Aside from that, many residents think it will lower their quality of life.
"Anticipating lots of noise and traffic from the stadium."
No matter what, Alderman Ambrose says there will be plenty chances for people to voice their opinions.
"We'll work together and try to find a compromise if possible."
