TEMPLE TERRACE — City attorney Mark Connolly said it may take several meetings between city representatives and the developer to come to a resolution over Downtown Temple Terrace, presumably on how the partners can end their business arrangement without a court fight.
Vlass Temple Terrace and the city agreed in a first meeting held two weeks ago to keep negotiations confidential. At Connolly’s request, the City Council this week voted to approve an agreement with Vlass that neither side will sue the other while negotiations are under way.
That will allow the two sides time to work out differences, Connolly said in an interview. They most likely are discussing how to amicably end their relationship, since that was the developer’s stated wish in a March letter by the company’s attorney, David Smith, requesting a meeting.
