"Will I tell anyone they won't hear the track?" No," said Gammon.
However, he's confident the noise will be tolerable for people living around it. He also said he doesn't believe it will be any louder than the airport.
"You can hear the highway traffic as it is; that's bad enough. Just because that's there doesn't mean you should add more," said Pascoe.
Traffic is another issue on the minds of many.
"We understand it's more traffic than there is now, abolutely," said Gammon. "We also realize the facility impacts our neighbors and we want to be good neighbors."
The Branson Sports Entertainment Complex (BRCE) is working closely with the Missouri Department of Transportaiton (MoDOT) to find a solution. BRCE plans to pay for work to connect the complex to U.S. 65, along with outer roads. The outer roads were on MoDOT's long-term plan before funding ran out. Another road will be built connecting the BRCE with the Branson Airport.
Additionally, during events, at which some 60,000 to 65,000 spectators could be on hand, BRCE says it will find a way to make sure residents in the area can get in and out without waiting in long lines.
KY3 News was shown a "proof of funding" letter by BRCE. It says the $250 million for the project has been secured. It will be released in phases as the project moves forward: $45 million will go to land and engineering; $70 million will go to roads and transportation improvements; $27 million will be spent on infrastructure, including wastewater systems that will benefit the entire area; the remaining $108 million will be spent on the track itself along with buildings and grandstands.
The main track will be 3/4 mile. The plans also include an open road course and a drag strip.
BRCE has all the required permits for grading and excavating. The group will meet on July 11 in Forsyth to show its proposal to Planning and Zoning.
Taney County does not have building codes, but BRCE is following international code. The company has hired a code consultant to help on the project.
Developers say the 800-acre complex will employ 2,600 full-time and part-time positions during the construction and hundreds of others once the complex is open for business.
It is scheduled to open in spring 2013.
