The Panama City Beach City council is holding off on a decision to allow a Middle Beach Road shopping center to be turned into an entertainment venue.
Council members were scheduled to discuss the issue at a public
workshop Thursday night, but decided to table it until January 22nd.
Chris Pitts wants to repurpose the old Publix building on Hutchison Boulevard and create "Meridian Live."
Officials say it could draw crowds upward of 3,000 people.
Meantime, some locals are concerned it will create traffic, parking and safety issues.
Both sides are working with the City to come up with a compromise.
