Petitions have been filed with the City of Brookings to refer the City Council’s November 14th decision to amend the Marketplace agreement.

Ryan Companies of Minneapolis was planning to buy about 18-acres for 1.1 million dollars. Instead, they want to now purchase about 10-acres for $610,000. The initial plan included a large anchor tenant. That is shifting to two smaller stores.

The City will begin the process of validating the signatures today. If enough are valid, it would lead to a citywide election on the issue.

Perry Miller has more on the story…

It would require 651 valid petition signatures for the referral to a citywide vote.
