Update: City Tight-Lipped About Proposal on Lullaby Property
By Brandi Makuski
Another development proposal is in the works for the former Lullaby property- but city leaders aren’t giving any details yet.
Mayor Mike Wiza on Tuesday said it was “safe to assume” there was a development proposal before the city, but declined to give any details.
“It was all in closed session, but yes, there’s probably a development there. You can pretty much deduce we’ve had a proposal,” was all Wiza would say on Tuesday.
Michael Ostrowski, director of community development, said “at least some” details should be available the week of Feb. 22, with more to follow after the next meeting of the city’s Redevelopment Authority.
Ostrowski, along with the Wiza and the city council, entered into closed session on Feb. 8 to “negotiate the terms of a development agreement” for the property, according to the finance committee agenda.
Past proposals for the property, located on the corner of Third St. and Centerpoint Dr., have included an upscale retirement apartment home complex and mixed-used residential and retail developments, all of which were denied.
