Landowner Spike Bicknell has applied to turn the 26 acres near the airport into a motocross park.
Spike Bicknel, owners of the Honsinger Pond property, wants to build a motorcross park on 26 acres near the airport. Public opposition has been fierce over the loss of wetlands used by waterfowl.
Bicknell Construction has been trying to develop the property for years. But previous efforts to rezone the property had been rejected by the city following public opposition from admirers of the wild purple flowers that bloom in late spring.
