City determines Branson Building Will be Limited to 12 Stories

Monday's city meeting was packed as the dicussion to approve Huffman's latest venture, a proposed 25 story 300 foot highrise was discussed.

13 of 14 citizens speaking to the Board of Aldermen agree - a highrise isn't good for Branson. Citizens cited the beauty of the landscape as reason to object. The Branson Daily News reported the Mayors approval of the building, "25 stories is good but I'd rather see 35".

A compromise of 12 stories was approved by city council; however, the developer expressed doubts about continuing the project under the new terms.
