Game over for soccer field plans in OP

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) – It’s game over for plans to build a soccer field at an old horse stable in Orchard Park. The Town Board has decided not to allow a soccer club to convert the property on Freeman Road into indoor playing areas.

Some people living nearby complained the project would hurt property values. A petition opposing the proposal had about 200 signatures.

Supporters of the club said it would have saved time and money for parents because they wouldn’t have to travel to other communities to allow their kids to train. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
