Mediation between the Memphis River Parks Partnership (MRPP) and Memphis in May organizers is on hold while the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers studies MRPP’s redesign proposals for Tom Lee Park, the Commercial Appeal reports. The Corps will analyze the plan for functionality, flooding concerns and any potential impact on commercial river traffic. Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland hopes that the Corps' input will help with the mediation. Construction has been pushed back to the fall due to the delays. The approval process takes at least 90 days.
