The Rome City Commission has approved plans by Ledbetter Properties for 80 acres on Riverside Parkway around Burwell Creek.  Commissioners voted five to three to approve a revised Memorandum of Understanding with the developers in front of a packed house on Monday night.  According to this morning’s Rome News-Tribune, some 72 acres would be placed in a conservation easement while eight acres would be developed (more than likely into a retail space).  Riverside Parkway Partners LLC is expected to close on the $600,000 purchase from the city by the end of the year.
