Crestwood residents march over stalled mall

   Some Crestwood residents say city leaders are dragging their feet on a plan to redevelop the shuttered Crestwood Plaza.  Dozens of people marched from the old mall to City Hall Tuesday to express their concern.

   Developer Centrum Properties wants to turn the site into an entertainment center with a movie theater, bowling alley, restaurants and retail stores.  But their plan calls for $22 million in taxpayer subsidies -- a figure Crestwood Mayor Jeff Schlink says he and many aldermen are not "comfortable" with.

   "If we're going to grant and issue those tax breaks for them," Schlink said, "they're going to have to be done on terms that we feel are reasonable for the city."

   Centrum officials say if they can't work things out, they may have to sell the land one parcel at a time.
