Akron Courthouse Security Complaints End Building Plan

AKRON, Ohio (AP) - The city of Akron today abandoned plans for a commercial office building and parking deck because of courthouse security concerns.

Judges had complained that the project adjacent to the Akron federal courthouse would pose a security risk.

Mayor Don Plusquellic (plus-QUELL'-ihk) says the city instead will expand another parking deck. Akron also will try to find another location for the three- to five-story office building part of the project.
