Are you ready for some football? Fort Lauderdale neighbors say no; claim city zoning brass won’t enforce rules that protect property owners

Fort Lauderdale’s summer of neighborhood discontent continues – this time in Coral Ridge where Cardinal Gibbons High School is pressing ahead with plans to light up its football field over the objections of neighbors.
The neighbors oppose lights on poles that reach as high as 95 feet on an athletic field at the Catholic high school.
City rules had limited churches and church schools to structures of 35 feet; however, city commissioners changed the rules in April to allow taller structures as long as they were compatible to the surrounding neighborhood.
