“The city passed an ordinance in 2018 that was very specific in regards to the steps the developer had to take, and unfortunately they were not completed,” SSCAFCA executive engineer Charles Thomas said in A press release. “Significant planning is always required and is subject to City review and approval before any action can be taken. “
Thomas said the board felt that the opportunity would have been good for the surrounding community, further development and management activities required by the 2018 ordinance would have been outside SSCAFCA’s mission.
According to the statement, Thomas is hopeful that a suitable developer will take ownership and that this area will be improved for use by the community.
