SEMINOLE -- A hearing for Holiday Campground Inc. and La Perla Development Group has been postoned until Oct. 2. Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Judge John Lenderman will preside over the 3:30 p.m hearing at the Judicial Building in downtown St. Petersburg.

The hearing was rescheduled to give the attorneys more time for mediation.

Developer John Reed of La Perla filed a lawsuit in July against Bill Baynard Sr., owner of Holiday Campground, a 600-lot RV park at 10000 Park Blvd. The suit alleges that Baynard has failed and refused to provide copies of deeds for 55 acres of submerged land, part of a 101-acre parcel Baynard is selling to Reed for $11.4-million. The campground is located on the property. The 55 acres cannot be developed because the land borders Long Bayou and a fragile wetlands system.

The suit claims La Perla cannot process preliminary site plans and other governmental approvals necessary to enable it to develop a $100-million project that would replace the campground with a mixture of single-family homes, townhomes and condominiums.

In August, Holiday Campground Inc. filed its own complaint, saying Reed was defaulting on his end of the deal.
