A legal battle between the city and the owners of The Jacksonville Landing could be behind the visible tension between that's boiled over into social media this week.
Meanwhile, taxpayers want to see more action and less talking.
"When Fat Tuesday's was here, it was alive. Now, it's just boring," Sherika Stokes said.
"Kind of sad because I know what the potentiality is," Terry Curry said.
That's how people Action News Jax spoke to Friday described The Jacksonville Landing, the once-popular destination has seen attendance dwindle over the years.
"It's not as entertaining as what it needs to be," Curry said.
It's a sentiment shared by many, including city leaders.
Mayor Lenny Curry took his frustrations to Twitter saying Thursday, "Taxpayers deserve better for their investment & their asset."
But the property's future remains uncertain largely because of a legal battle between the city and the owners of the Landing, Sleiman Enterprises.
That legal battle is on its way to a jury trial in 2018.
Action News Jax obtained more than 250 pages of court records from a lawsuit filed in 2015 by the city against Sleiman Enterprises.
A parking lot in the East Parcel is at the center of the dispute. Sleiman wants more than $4 million back from the city, claiming the property was never closed on but the city disagrees.
The Landing was close to being redesigned last year after a new designer was chosen that would've demolished the exiting property and started from scratch.
But some fear not much will get done until the lawsuit is resolved.
"I think we should get the input of most of the people that come to the Landing and spend time here and what they would like to see happen," Terry Curry said.
The next court date for the civil lawsuit is scheduled for Sept. 19.
