From Quiet Country Neighborhood to Noisy Water Sports Arena

About 20 years ago I purchased a large lot and home that goes down to a river.

It's on a quiet cul-da-sac and there's a real country feel to the property. Across

the river was a large, private farm with a couple horses. When the owner died, he

deeded his property to the city. We just discovered the city council is doing a

final vote in about a week on a proposed project for the city to construct a

swimming pool and large water slide on this property. The neighborhood will go

from a quiet, relaxing one where the only noise heard is some birds

occassionally singing to a noisy 8A to 8P water sports arena. All the neighbors

on our quiet cul-da-sac are concerned, not only about the noise but also the

diminished value of our properties that currently average $750,000 to over $2

million. We're having a neighborhood meeting tomorrow night. What are our

rights, and how should we proceed? Thanks a lot.
