PLYMOUTH, Ind. -- Plans to build a new tennis complex in Plymouth's Centennial Park have been put on hold indefinitely.

Some saw the project as a threat to the future of the Blueberry Festival which has taken place in Centennial Park since 1966.

Festival officials feared the loss of land to the tennis facility would have put them in a pinch for space.

The tennis project was put on hold Wednesday when it became clear it no longer had the support of the Plymouth City Council.

If the tennis court committee were to bring it forward now, and it was voted down, the $750,000 appropriation it would probably not come back at least for a long time.

The tennis committee has instead decided to regroup and take time to address community concerns.

The project was scheduled to come up for a vote before the city council on Monday that has been cancelled.
