Concerns are being raised about a plan to turn the former Summit Park Mall into a sports complex.

Community members got the chance to review the proposal to turn the vacant mall into a complex consisting of several soccer fields and basketball courts - all which will be covered by domes.

Neighbors around the property are worried about the height of those domes and the noise that would come from generators on site.

"We can't open our windows tonight, we're going to have lighting issues, there are many issues that have been brought up tonight but there's more that they don't ... I can't explain it to you. This has got me very upset about this because I've owned a property over 25 years. I have one tenant tell me if they put that across the street, I'm moving," said Wheatfield resident Sam Cirrito.

Additional public meetings are planned before a final decision is made.
