EDITORIAL: No need for lawmakers to stand in the way of an Eisenhower CID

There are several storylines in the effort by owners of the Macon Mall to have a yet-to-be designated area declared a Community Improvement District by the state General Assembly.

No residential properties are involved. The effort must get 75 percent of the affected property owners’ approval.
