Preliminary aproval granted for site plans on Laca Court Posted on February 18, 2016 at 12:19:18 PM by Jeff "Laca" Conway
Officials of the NJAA and Point West Engineering spent several hours Tuesday at the Pinellas County courthouse seeking permit approval for the construction of America's first privately owned amateur jai-alai court on residential property.
Preliminary approval was granted on the site plans, but paperwork issues in other departments of the permitting offices have caused a delay that will set back the expected approval about 3 weeks or so.
There are issues with the wording on certain new codes in place for 2016 and there was a concern on how the courts roof, now a metal one, is going to be attached so it won't blow off during a major storm. Point West Engineering is still confident approval is coming once these paperwork issues are redone by project engineers. In addition, another department at the county is requiring a new full survey done on the property with the newly added area that was acquired in a land swap with the neighbor.
Once these issues are settled, permitting on the court is expected to be issued and a groundbreaking date will be set. Organizers are optimistic the court may be ready by Memorial Day weekend.
