A local man wants to build a motorsports park complete with a Motocross track, one-fifth-mile dirt track and ATV trails on 36 acres near Interstate 465 and Mann Road on the southwest side. Entrepreneur Dale Skaggs, who owns the property under Skaggs Enterprises Inc., has applied for a variance to build the park in a floodplain along the White River at 4107 W. Thompson Road. He's also are asking for permission to build restrooms, concession stands, and a bike wash and storage area, along with access to the White River. The site previously was approved for eight softball diamonds, batting cages and a concession stand. An initial hearing, scheduled for March 11, has been continued until April, said senior planner David Hittle. The planning department last year recommended denial of a similar proposal, citing the proximity of residential neighborhoods to what would be a noisy user, along with regulations on development in a floodplain, Hittle said. The developer's land-use attorney, Mike Quinn, says the site is perfect for the area's first American Motorcyclist Association-sanctioned Motocross track. Check out the proposed site plan.
