HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The third time didn't prove to be a charm for plans for a new Hopkinsville Municipal Center.
The Kentucky Department of Housing, Building and Construction has rejected the proposal, stalling construction on the facility once more.
Director of Community and Development Services Steve Bourne told The Kentucky New Era (http://bit.ly/Rh8Nuw ) that the city has to consolidate the two sites the planned hall is scheduled to occupy before construction will be approved.
Senior Project Manager Tara Myers says the issue arose because the city didn't want to merge the two properties.
Bourne said property development owns the site and the sites will be consolidated before resubmitting the plans for state approval. Bourne hopes to have the issue resolved by the end of next week.
