Inspect the city's Central Landing contract and Cantrell Field RFP here

The special election that will decide if the city will be getting the Central Landing shopping center looks on pace to end Wednesday with more than 250 votes. 

The issue isn't without controversy, and some comments to thecabin.net stories come from people who say the Cantrell Field request for proposal — essentially an invitation to real estate developers to show their plans and what they'll pay — and the contract with developer Jim Wilson & Associates have been kept "in the dark" by city hall. These documents have been available at city hall.
