Residents of a quiet neighborhood near Pine Level are fighting future development near their homes.
The Autauga County Commission is considering building a baseball complex on County Road 104, near Highway 31.
But folks who live there say it would disrupt their way of life and don't think the area can support it.
Birds and occasional airplanes are what Ron Feild says he typically hears each afternoon at his house.
"We have a very tranquil, peaceful way of life out here."
But that could change if the Autauga County Commission votes to build four baseball fields in a pecan orchard only yards from his home.
"First base is about 40 yards from this property line right there. It is actually designated by a painted pink area on the ground according to the surveyors. All the people here have worked 40 years or more to find their place in the sun, so to speak, to settle down, retire and we don't need the lights, the noise pollution and the traffic."
Many residents who live in the area have no problem with ball fields in general, and believe if Autauga County needs them then they should be built. But, they don't believe the orchard is the right spot.
"To speak against a ball field is like speaking against mother nature and apple pie. However, you know, it needs to be in an appropriate place," adds Feild.
Feild believes an area closer to young families with children might work better--perhaps on a road already capable of handling large amounts of traffic.
WSFA 12 News spoke with Autauga County Commissioner Marshall Reese who represents Feild's district.
He says the commission is open to finding alternative locations for the ball fields.
He admits there is a need for a park in Autauga County, but also wants to honor the requests of his constituents.
"Does not need to be dropped in a settled, older community," says Feild.
A community forum is planned for Monday night at Marbury High School to discuss the future of the sports complex.
