ST. PETERSBURG - Three area chefs face off Saturday to compete for the "best sauce" honor as part of a local fundraiser with an uncommon cause - to sue the city.
The Eagle Crest Civic Association is hosting a Battle of the Italian Chefs to raise money for its legal fund.
Along with 27 other neighborhood residents, the association is alleging that the city did not abide by its own comprehensive plan when it approved a zoning and land-use request in December.
The 18 acres in question are at Ninth Avenue N and 66th Street. The property is under contract with the Sembler Co.
The company also is named in the lawsuit.Nicole Bardo-Colon can be reached at 893-8779 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
