Jennifer Lazovich told the City Council that the Fisher Brothers plan to build a 146,000 square-foot recreational facility which will include multiple areas, one of which Lazovich likened to comic books, another to science fiction film “Blade Runner” and a third to the apocalyptic “Mad Max” film series.
