A Greenbrae resident has appealed the renovation of Marin Catholic High School’s football bleachers and surrounding facilities, according to the Marin Independent Journal.
The , as well as bleacher seating, an improved press box, bathrooms, a storage area, snack stand and access for persons with disabilities. Under the grandstand seating would be a state-of-the-art weight room and locker rooms for the football, soccer and lacrosse teams. The project is expected to cost $3 million.
In his appeal, John Holzwarth said the planned grandstand needs additional noise decibel limits because it will include a new speaker system. He also said the county should ban the use of the speak system for non-Marin Catholic events, including youth sports.
County staffers approved the project month. It will now go before the county planning commission.
Marin Catholic President Tim Navone told the Independent Journal the appeal is “ludicrous.”
