CRBI halts development in Rome wetlands
Four years of work by CRBI to stop a 60-acre retail development on floodplain and wetlands in Rome along the Oostanaula River have resulted in the temporary halt to the development. On May 2, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers suspended the permit for the Citi Center project; two weeks later, the developer, Ledbetter Properties, withdrew its permit application for the project. The developer is expected to re-apply for a new permit. This time, the permit process should include a public review and comment period (an important procedure that the developer by-passed to secure its initial permits for the project). Read a Rome News-Tribune article about the permit suspension. Read more about this issue on the CRBI website.
