ANCHORAGE- The Anchorage Planning and Zoning Commission is preparing to decide whether enough steps have been taken to mitigate noise and other disturbances from a proposed stadium at South Anchorage High School.

Neighbors continue to express concerns over a proposal to add lights, bleachers and a sound system.
The school opened in 2004 with football practice fields. The team plays home games at Anchorage Football Stadium.
Principal Kersten Johnson-Struempler says Anchorage high schools have been moving toward a site-based, home-field system for football games.
South High parents and students in 2012 obtained a $2.2 million legislative grant for a stadium.
Neighbors say that's not what was promised when the school was built.
The school district has investigated ways to dampen sounds at the proposed stadium.
