KAHULUI, Hawaii (AP) - Maui Lani residents near the site of the planned Central Maui Regional Sports Complex are telling officials they want the project to be built somewhere else.

The Maui News reports that residents of the subdivision are concerned about traffic, lights and noise at the ball fields.

Construction on the 65-acre complex is slated to begin this summer and finish next year.

Officials say about $18.5 million in state funds have already been appropriated to the project. Planning, design, permit approvals, and archaeological and soil tests are all complete.

Lt. Gov. Shan Tsutsui says that moving the project wasn't feasible because repeating those steps would delay construction for seven to 10 years.
