The article quotes Bleakly Vice President Jonathan Gelber who described the current state of the process, “To put it in real casual terms, what we’ve been doing up to this point is dating and flirting. Once this document gets signed it’s like an engagement, and we say we both agree we want the same things in life and we’re going to move forward. It is at the point of a development agreement which ideally would be roughly six months from now, then that’s a marriage,” Gelber said.

“The memorandum of understanding will act as a nonbinding document between the city, the Urban Redevelopment Agency, the Downtown Development Authority and Fabric Developers prior to an approved development agreement. It includes the Town Green design, development and construction process,” the Decaturish article reports.
