Avon Oaks tennis dome closer to being built

AVON, OH (WOIO) -

A proposal to build a 38 ft. dome over four of the tennis courts at Avon Oaks Country Club in Avon is one step closer to reality.

The Avon Planning Commission unanimously approved the plan at a meeting this week.

The proposal next moves on to City Council for a decision. Lawyers for the club and nearby residents who oppose the plan made presentations to the Planning Commission in December.

It is a thorny issue because if the dome is turned down the club could actually move the courts closer to the residents homes which would substantially reduce the wooded buffer zone between their homes and the relocated courts.

Some changes have been made to the plan since 19 Action News detailed the debate in a story back in September.
