Fort Pierre businesswoman Diane London will not appeal a judge's ruling that blocked a city vote on some aspects of a $16 million Missouri River development.
London's attorney says that she will not take the matter to the state Supreme Court, but she will monitor future City Council actions on the $16 million Riverwalk Landing project.
The project is to include a marina, restaurant and retail space. London and others who believed it was getting preferential treatment from the city used referral petitions to bring to a public vote the council's actions approving a boat storage permit. They failed in efforts to refer zoning changes and a deferred $142,000 development fee.
City voters on July 9 affirmed the council's decisions regarding the boat storage area.
