Cincinnati Planning Commission Approves Practice Dome for Bengals


The Cincinnati Bengals have won approval from the Cincinnati Planning Commission to build a removeable and inflatable 75 foot high synthetic air dome on the riverfront. The Bengals say the dome will include a regulation size interior turf practice field for use when the weather gets bad. In the application for the zoning change, the club says the Bengals are one of the few teams across the NFL that currently do not have an indoor practice facility. The Bengals will pay for construction of the facility on land that is currently owned by Hamilton County. The county obtained the property from Hilltop Concrete for this expressed purpose. The land is located west of Paul Brown Stadium between the Brent Spence Bridge and the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge. Elizabeth Blackburn with the Bengals thanked the commission for its timely review of the project which she says will help the team grow its operations in Cincinnati.
