SJP Properties have withdrawn an application to be able to do construction on Saturdays.
Earlier on Wednesday, the city announced that SJP Properties will not be asking for special permission to be able to do construction on Saturdays.

The resolution will NOT be heard at tonight's meeting," stated the city's Facebook page. The waiver was proposed late last month to the chagrin of local residents. Under the city's noise ordinance, construction isn't allowed on Saturdays. SJP Properties, however, has asked the city for a waiver, in order to do construction work on Saturdays at the Waterfront Corporate Center III, a new development at Second and River Streets.

The public is invited to attend the council meeting on May 15, to hear the developer's — SJP Properties — reasons for the need of a waiver. If granted, construction work would be allowed to continue on Saturdays, something that is not allowed under the city's noise ordinance.
