RIDGELAND, Miss. (WLBT) – It will likely be more than a month before the Ridgeland mayor and Board of Aldermen considers giving the green light to a controversial mixed-use development planned for Highland Colony Parkway.
Tuesday, the board voted unanimously to extend the petition and application time for a conditional use permit for Mattiace Properties to June 21.
Aldermen were expected to vote on whether to grant the permit at its May 2 meeting.
However, that vote was delayed at the request of the developer, Mayor Gene McGee said.
Developer Andrew Mattiace is proposing a mixed-use project that would include 280 residential units along Highland Colony Parkway near Lake Castle Road.
The city’s zoning board recommended denying the request after a public hearing in April.
McGee did not know why Mattiace had asked for a time extension.
Officials with the Mattiace Company had not responded to our request for comment.
