Minnehaha Academy revealed designs for overhauling its upper campus soccer field at a community meeting Wednesday, and its plan to install 80-foot field lights drew particular concern from neighbors in attendance.

After the contentious session, school officials committed to hosting a follow-up meeting with neighbors April 2 at 6:30 at the upper school. The school will also need to go through the city's public comment period to secure the multiple rule variances required for the project.
