A developer wants to rezone some land on North Seminary Street in Galesburg. The plan is generating enough interest that the city has scheduled a public meeting to talk about it.
The meeting is scheduled for September 11, 5:00 pm, in the Costa Catholic Academy Auditorium. Raufeisen Development will give a presentation on its plan before the floor is opened for a question-and-answer period.
The plan is to change the land from Single Family zoning to a mix of Two Family and General Business District.
