Mayor, Developers Begin River Park Demolition Project

FOR THE RECORD (October 14, 1997): Wrong time: The time given in Monday’s Business section for John Kretzmann’s Oct. 17 lecture on building communities was incorrect. The event will be at 7 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church, 318 S. Cedar.

The hammers fall on River Park Square Monday.

The mayor and River Park Square developers symbolically kick-off the demolition project by whacking the west block with hammers at a 10:30 a.m. news conference. The actual demolition is expected to start later in the week.

The $100 million development project, which will include a movie theater, shops and restaurants, is scheduled to be completed by mid-1999.
