BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Developers of a new Vermont mall center are scheduled to go to court with the project’s foes this fall.

Judge Thomas Walsh set the timetable Monday, as he is hearing the appeal of his ruling that the Burlington Town Center would not need to undergo a review in environmental court.

Opponents of the project say it should go through an Act 250 review, which studies the environmental and community impacts of large projects.

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/2rDvSxU ) the case may not even go to trial if mediation sessions are successful.

There have already been three mediation sessions since May. Former Burlington Mayor Peter Clavelle is serving as mediator.

In a court affidavit, the mall’s developer says he is losing $270,000 for every month construction is delayed.
