Residents of Brady, Texas, have sued their city over a new ATV park they say is creating too much noise, traffic and dust.

A group of residents at the Simpson Lake Club, which is adjacent to the new MUDualistic ATV Park, say the city violated its zoning laws in approving the park and didn’t give citizens enough time to comment before doing so.

The suit claims there was only "vague" notice in a special meeting agenda, and the contract was approved, according to the San Angelo Standard-Times. The lawsuit states that when the city annexed the more than 630 acres for the park, it was zoned for agricultural use by default and hadn't been rezoned since. The suit also states that the zoning is inconsistent with the city's comprehensive plan.

The lawsuit names a dozen plaintiffs and seeks a court order voiding the authorization of the lease for Mudualistic.

The city issued a statement saying it will file an answer to the lawsuit by May 21.
