Opponent Says No Appeal on Riverwalk Landing Issue
FORT PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Fort Pierre businesswoman Diane London will not appeal a judge’s ruling that blocked a city vote on some aspects of a $16 million Missouri River development.
London’s attorney tells the Capital Journal that she will not take the matter to the state Supreme Court, but she will monitor future City Council actions on the $16 million Riverwalk Landing project.
The project is to include a marina, restaurant and retail space. London and others who believed it was getting preferential treatment from the city used referral petitions to bring to a public vote the council’s actions approving a boat storage permit. They failed in efforts to refer zoning changes and a deferred $142,000 development fee.
City voters on July 9 affirmed the council’s decisions regarding the boat storage area.
