Friday Night Lights at Cardinal Gibbons | Coral Ridge - Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons Football Field Residents in the upscale community of Coral Ridge Country Club Estates neighboring Cardinal Gibbons High School are planning a meeting with city officials to determine what is to be done with the high school's football field lighting. Cardinal Gibbons school officials reportedly spent nearly $250, 000 on new field lighting after receiving permission from the city of Fort Lauderdale to install the light towers. Through what seems as an oversight, permission was given to install 4 light towers exceeding the 35 feet height limit per city code. Neighbors affected by the bright lights complained and city officials realizing the error, contacted the school with 3 options, one being to apply for a variance. Cardinal Gibbons chose to apply for a variance. The decision on the Friday Night Lights at Cardinal Gibbons will be decided at a meeting with city officials, now scheduled for Wednesday, August 13, 2008 at City Hall, 100 North Andrews Avenue. The public is welcomed to attend. Coral Ridge is located between Commercial Boulevard and Sunrise Boulevard just west of the Intracoastal Waterway and east of Federal Highway. Homes for sale in Coral Ridge range in price from $400's to more than 7 million for homes on dry lots, golf-course and waterfront canals.
