For more than a decade, New Port Richey city officials have tried to walk the walk and talk the talk about attracting prosperous residents with a walkable community downtown.
Begun in 2004, the Main Street Landing project will restart construction after a public ceremony 11 a.m. Friday, Feb. 24, at the site at 5500 Main St.
Gainesville-based developers Ken and Linda McGurn and Onicx Construction executives are scheduled to join city leaders.
