Sansone Group decides against Cecil precinct development, alcohol vote to go ahead

A real estate development firm that headed up a petition for a special election on alcohol sales in a McCracken County precinct with an eye on developing there now says it will not build in the county. 

Company principal Jim Sansone says Sansone Group will not build in McCracken County. After striving for tax credits from the city of Paducah and McCracken County that the firm didn’t get, he says there is a financial gap that cannot be filled.

On Tuesday, the Cecil precinct of McCracken County will still vote whether or not to allow alcohol sales. Sansone says a yes vote from the precinct would have made the project more likely, but despite that, the firm will not be developing near the Kentucky Oaks Mall area.
