Agreement in Principle Reached on Dillard's Property
NewMark Merrill Mountain States − through its affiliate NMMS Twin Peaks, LLC; Dillard’s; and Longmont Urban Renewal Authority have reached an agreement in principle to settle the Dillard’s eminent domain litigation. This agreement in principle paves the way for a judicial transfer of title from Dillard’s to the Longmont Urban Renewal Authority for the Dillard’s store at the Twin Peaks Mall. As part of the agreement and subject to City Council and Longmont Urban Renewal Authority (LURA) approval, LURA will contribute $500,000 to cover a portion of the transaction costs that include legal expenses and costs associated with expert testimony, witnesses and other litigation fees. The next step in the process is City Council consideration at its January 21 meeting of an additional appropriation ordinance to fund the LURA contribution.
