Overton Square Updates

Important Notice
From Memphis Heritage
To Memphis Overton Square Supporters
As many of you have heard, the owners of Overton Square,
Univest/Fisher Capital, have applied for a demolition permit for
Overton Square. They have asked that the Memphis City Council approve their request on Tuesday December 15th.
Before the City Council hears the owners request for this demo permit, Councilman Shea Flinn, sponsor of the Resolution that passed requiring council approval of any demo permit for the Overton Square area, would like interested parties to meet.
This meeting is being held this Wed. Dec. 9th at 4pm at
City Hall 125 N. Main in the 5th floor conference room.
We want our supporters and the community to know about this important meeting. This is an open meeting. The public is welcome to attend.
Sooner Investments, the proposed developers, have not submitted a plan for the site. Instead the owners' plan to demolish the buildings at Overton Square before a plan is approved. It is a possibility that the proposed development
might not move forward and there would be an even larger parking lot.
Thank you for your continued support!
