    An anticipated opening for the FloridaHospital Center Ice complex will be delayeduntil spring 2016, largely due to a slowerthan expected wait on permitting.

    Gordie Zimmermann, a partner in ZMitch, said he expects construction to re-sume in the next weeks, with a scheduledcompletion in the first quarter of 2016.

    Were in good shape, Zimmermannsaid.

    Initially, the opening for the sports com-plex, at 3173 Cypress Ridge Blvd., had beenannounced for the fall, potentially at thesame time as the Tampa Premium Outlets.The outlet mall will open on Oct. 29.

    Both facilities are off State Road 56 at theInterstate 75 interchange.

    A groundbreaking for the sports com-plex took place in March. Thepre-construction work including under-ground utilities has been completed. But,the site has been inactive for several

    Traffic jams caused tempers to flare andpoor weather kept balloons from launchingduring the third annual Festival of Flight atthe Tampa North Flight Center.

    Scores of motorists complained via thefestivals Facebook page about being stuckin traffic for hours.

    Some said they were turned away fromthe venue because there was no place topark. Others said they gave up and voiced ir-ritation for being inconvenienced.

    Numerous posts criticized event organiz-ers for failing to secure enough parking, fornot having law enforcement to direct trafficand for not letting people know earlyenough when events were cancelled.

    The Friday Night Balloon Glow was held,

    but balloon launches scheduled on Saturdayand Sunday mornings were cancelled be-cause of the weather.

    Some activities also were able to go on,but much of the event was a washout.

    Jessica Warren, festival director forFestival of Flight, said We are reconsideringall of our options. That includes, whetherto stage the event again.

    Everybody says it was disorganized,Warren said, but months of hard work andplanning went into the event.

    Parking was arranged for 20 acres onCompark 75, which is next to Tampa NorthFlight Center. Warren and her husbandmowed the field to prepare it for parking.

    Fifty-six volunteers were also secured tohelp with parking, she said.
