OLIVE BRANCH — An Olive Branch community remains in the lurch about whether a controversial movie theater will be constructed near its homes.
The Commercial Appeal reports the developer has filed an appeal in DeSoto County Circuit Court about Board of Aldermen decisions he said are preventing a theater from being developed near Wedgewood subdivision.
A second potential site for a theater was before the Board of Aldermen earlier this week. Unlike the Wedgewood site across from a Target store, its zoning already allows for a movie theater.
A representative for Cinema Group Inc., the movie theater developer, has stated the preferred site for a theater is the Wedgewood site.
Wedgewood residents have expressed concerns over potential crime and traffic congestion.
