It's been a rough two months for Crestwood Court. In December the Board of Aldermen rejected a planner for a proposed redevelopment project, ceasing ongoing discussions for the District at Crestwood. .
It's made some residents more anxious than ever to see action.
At Tuesday night's Board of Aldermen meeting, former alderman Greg Roby asked for an update on communications with the mall's developers, Centrum Partners.
"My indication from talking to citizens that they're very concerned with the fact that there's not a lot of movement, and they're not wanting to continue seeing that property just sit there," he said.
Mayor Jeff Schlink said he spoke with Sol Barket the day after the board's vote in December, who expressed interest in having a work session with board sometime in January or February.
One alderman suggested the board have their own work session focused on edevelopment before they meet with Centrum reps again
"We reminded each other that the property sat vacant for many, many years. We didn't see a few months being a deal breaker, causing problems for us to continue our discussions," he said.
Roby suggested a town hall-style meeting that would discuss demolition and related costs.
