Deja Vu: Permit Problems Tank Kanye's Amphitheater Dream
(AllHipHop News) Kanye West has been ordered to halt construction on a massive amphitheater on the grounds of his Wyoming ranch after starting the building work without a permit.
The "Jesus Walks" hitmaker recently applied with Park County officials seeking approval to use the space at his sprawling Monster Lake Ranch property for meditation.
Authorities initially visited the proposed site after receiving the planning request and had to ask the rapper to cease development after discovering he had already brought in contractors to start clearing the area.
The rapper has since been ordered to immediately halt the building work until they rule on his permit request.
Park County Wyoming Planner Joy Hill further reveals to TMZ that the application had been due to be discussed at a Planning and Zoning Commission meeting.
But the topic was removed from the agenda at the last minute after learning that Kanye had changed his mind about the purpose of the new construction, switching it to residential use.
As a result, he will now have to submit new forms for the building permit - and put a stop to the early construction work until officials approve or deny the request.
Kanye fell in love with the great outdoors in Cowboy Country after spending time there while recording his 2018 album Ye, and he subsequently expressed his desire to relocate there permanently with his wife Kim Kardashian and their four children.
