SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The potential for an outdoor concert venue in South Portland is off the table - at least for now.

John Cacoulidis withdrew his application this week for a 10,000-seat theater overlooking Portland Harbor near Bug Light Park. The plan was backed by city officials.

According to Mayor Jalbert, the city will continue to look for venues and hope to have a venus ready to host concerts this summer. That includes reexamining the Portland Pipe Line land as a potential location.

Cacoulidis says he will consider the property in the future, but felt that the idea wasn't being handled properly from an operational or financial standpoint.
