Overton Square News

Dear friends of Overton Square,

Good News!
The following resolution passed unanimously in City Council yesterday,
Tuesday June 2, 2009:

"Resolution requesting that the Division of Planning and Development/Construction Code Enforcement issue no permit for demolition in Overton Square without approval by the Memphis City Council."

This action was taken to encourage the developers to enter into a dialogue with the various stakeholders in the areas surrounding Overton Square before their plans are set.

We feel it is much easier to be creative in the design stages than to wait until a final plan is submitted to the Office of Planning and Development.

We will continue to send out emails as we have new information.
Thank you for your continued support.
