The election of a new mayor and three new City Council members in Dyersville, Iowa is prompting speculation about what the vote means to plans for a 24-field youth baseball and softball complex near the "Field of Dreams" movie site.
Jim Heavens, who lost his bid to be re-elected mayor in the Tuesday vote, says his defeat and the ouster of council members means the project is, "dead."
Alvin Haas was elected mayor. The new City Council members are Mark Wagner, Teresa Bockenstedt and Ray Sauser.
Nearby property owners have filed lawsuits against the city, arguing that officials illegally rezoned and approved building permits for the project.
Denise Stillman, who heads a group backing the development, says it's too early to comment on the election.
