Armory Square redevelopment hinges on a developer's agreement between the city of Park Rapids and Armory Square Management Corp.

Alan Zemek, who is heading up the potential redevelopment, wants the agreement to be finalized soon so he can get to work.


Zemek has plans to open Armory Square by June 2011 if all the pieces come together.

He has received several grants to assist in the cleanup of the property.
