The plan to bring improvements to a busy corridor in Perry is no longer moving forward.
City manager Lee Gilmour says Director of Economic Development Robert Smith sent a memo to mayor and council recommending the Community Improvement District planned for Courtney Hodges Boulevard be abandoned.
The city's economic development leaders held two public meetings on the issue, but property owners had too many objections. Gilmour says the CID is supposed to be a property owner led initiative.
It's not necessary for city council to take any action. Gilmour says the idea is simply dead for now.
