City to pursue developer for improvements

The city is preparing a complaint against the developers of Riverwalk to compel them to complete almost a half-million dollars in improvements or recoup money to do the improvements on its own.

During his report at the last Redevelopment Agency meeting, RRA attorney Frank Regan said officials have met with the condo board and management company at Riverwalk to talk about a number of concerns, including various improvements that have not been completed.

The biggest issue, according to Regan, has been the failure of Diversified Communities to complete more than $400,000 in on- and off-site improvements, with some streets still not permanently paved, leaving sewer manhole covers exposed on Hancock and Essex streets.
