(( The new Victory Stadium and Amphitheater are slated to be built near the Roanoke Civic Center where traffic is already congested. The Williamson Road Area Business Association says it fully supports the project but says city council acted too quickly in rezoning land for the project. The group and Farrell Properties are appealing the decision saying they believe the potential exists for the project to cause irreparable damage to the Williamson road community... by not FIRST coming up with a way to handle the additional traffic that will filter into the area. [nat sound] In hopes of winning the appeal-- the association and Farrell Properties are trying to have the zoning vote taken by city council thrown out. When the property was rezoned last month-- it took two different votes by city council. The first time there weren't enough yes votes to rezone the land-- so a second vote was taken after city council realized that not rezoning the land that night could delay the project. ))

If this second vote had not taken place and passed- the project would have been dead for a year. Tonight-- we contacted City council member Linda Wyatt for comment... She says council has repeatedly said before ground is ever broken for the project--the traffic issue will be resolved.
She also questioned whether these two groups might be trying to sabotage the project--
