Also on Thursday, the council gave developers an additional year to obtain building permits for a planned apartment complex at West Cleveland Street and North Hall Avenue. Seth Mims, a partner with Springdale-based Specialized Real Estate Group, asked for the extension in an Oct. 17 letter to Jeremy Pate, Development Services director.

Mims said a lawsuit pending in Washington County Circuit Court could easily delay the development by 12 to 18 months.

“I welcome a jury trail this Dec. 11 and 12,” Mims said Thursday. “I like that date, because it keeps things moving forward.”
