And the saga continues. The National Corvette Museum has officially set its appeal date in court for November 17, where it will argue the NCM Motorsports Park’s $100 per day fine was issued arbitrarily.
The NCM is hoping to have the $100 fine completely nullified, and lawyers will argue the Motorsports Park has been discriminated against, according to Bowling Green Daily News.
“The Code Enforcement Board has never before required any other landowner to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy on land,” the NCM said in legal paperwork associated with the appeal. “Rather, Certificates of Occupancy have been required only in relation to buildings. The National Corvette Museum is the first and only property owner that the Code Enforcement Board has ever cited for failure to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy related to land.”
The NCM continues to say it has maintained legal requirements to remain open the entire time, and has fast tracked production on a noise berm, and has taken immediate steps to rectify the sound issues from the track and residential neighbors.
The latest also has the park’s residential neighbors fighting for a temporary restraining order to shut the park down, and compensatory and punitive damages charges have already been filed. Compensation will be determined in court at a later date.
