Shoe Creek work can continue during lawsuit
CENTRAL - A judge chose not to issue a preliminary injunction which would halt work on a 700-unit property development in Central which has some residents at odds with city leaders.
Three Central residents sued Mayor Junior Shelton and four city council members over the Settlement at Shoe Creek development. The plans call for 150 acres for apartments, town homes, retail outlets and restaurants.
The citizens who sued claim the project violates city laws because it has almost six times the allowed number of apartments and uses a different traffic study than the one originally approved. City leaders said they've done everything by the books.
A hearing on a permanent injunction is scheduled for Oct. 23.
