NewsChannel 3's Dave Benton has been following this development and found there was not a contract agreement at this time.

Members of the Development Authority voted 8 to 6 to go into negotiations with Stanbery development to develop the lower level only of Kinetic Park. This is not the developer who built Pullman square and that's causing concerns for some people.

Before Huntington's development authority went into executive session they heard from TTA's director Vickie Shafer who wanted Pullman Square's developer to get the vote.

The authority voted to negotiate with Stanbery Development. A move some say is a slap in the face to the Pullman people.

We checked the Stanbery Development website and found their retail partners range from high end stores like Banana Republic and Ann Taylor loft, to Joseph A. Bank men's clothing.

A concern for some is the high end stores might hurt Pullman Square's efforts and others say Kinetic and Pullman will only compliment one another.

Again, this is only an agreement to negotiate with Stanbery Development, not a contract.
That means if something goes wrong in the negotiations the development authority can go another route.

Mayor David Felinton says this kinetic park development will just give more people another reason to come to Huntington.
