SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - A group of people in Summerville are suing the town in an effort to stop construction on a hotel project.
The lawsuit was filed Friday and claims the town violated federal, state and local laws when it entered the public-private partnership to build it.
Opponents to the project also criticize the funding agreements, have concerns about traffic, removal of trees and the size of the project.
The $30 million boutique hotel would be build at Cedar Street and Richardson Avenue. It would sit on 2.23 acres of land and would include condominiums, a restaurant, retail space, parking garage and a conference center.
A spokeswoman with the Town of Summerville says local officials have not seen the lawsuit and cannot talk about it.
