Field of Dreams Motor Sports, Inc. has filed for a pre-application conference with the Polk County Land Development Review Committee planning to construct a mud bog and motocross mud track on land west of U.S. 17 and adjacent to the Lake Lulu/Shipp Canal. The”Field of Dreams Mud Bog” is represented by Stephen Vaughan who lists his address as Lake Wales. Among other things, plans submitted to Polk County include plans for “airboat races” on a canal that the owners have dug on the property.
Others might ask: “Should a mud bog be located adjacent to the Lake Lulu/Shipp Canal and risk overflow during extreme rain events such as those of the past weekend.
The time for getting answers to those questions will be at the Review Meeting:
The Land Development Review Committee
Thursday, July 12
2nd Floor Conference Room
Neil Combee Administration Building
330 West Church Street, Bartow
This application is scheduled to be heard first on the agenda at 8:30 a.m.
