A Pikeville shopping center project could be delayed
WYMT is reporting that plans for a new $44 million shopping complex in Pikeville could be on hold after the city learned it may not be getting nearly half a million dollars it was counting on.
City officials say in order for the project to move forward the post office on site needs to move. Plans have it replacing the building down the street where a fire station currently is housed, but the city needs almost $400,000 to relocate that fire station.
The City was counting on that money to be allocated by the fiscal court, but they say the project was put at the bottom of the priority list with little hope of being funded this year.
The city is writing a resolution to present to the fiscal court hoping to change their minds.
