Monday evening during the Board of Public Works and Safety meeting City Attorney Sean Surrisi updated members of the discussion with the NRP Group. Surrisi said, “NRP has changed course. Their numbers weren’t quite working out on the financing end of the project at that location.” He said, “They are still interested in exploring a development elsewhere in the city on private land.”
Surrisi said, “The city is in discussions with some other folks with a different type of development.” He suggested the development would be more in line with the proposal offered this spring for 4 to 6 townhouses with a commercial space on the main level at Michigan Street.
Surrisi noted that the current discussions are still in the preliminary stages and developers exploring the options.
