The first contractor never got off the ground, but took some of the city's money which proved to be a problem to recover. I'm not sure if the city ever got all its money back.
Then we heard about Millworks, which, as you can see, is another plan to develop a downtown area by creating residences, restaurants and a parking area. That, too, has stalled, and I haven't heard much about it for a long time.
It's too bad, because Ocala's downtown area could use restoration/renovation of this sort.
