GGP, the owner of Southwest Plaza Mall, has suspended it application for annexation into the Town of Bow Mar.
February 10, 2015:
- The Petitions from the owners of Southwest Plaza as the Applicant to annex property in Jefferson County are still pending before the Town of Bow Mar.
- The Applicant continues to work with the County and the Town to understand the options available if the property were to be annexed into the Town.
- Currently, the proposal continues to be studied by the Town Trustees and its committees but as of this date there is no action by the Town Trustees scheduled.
- A part of the annexation would include a new sales tax to be shared by the annexed property for capital improvements and the Town. In order to enact such a sales tax, the Town would need to vote on any proposed sales tax; the soonest that election could be held would be November 2015.
