Neighborhood project goes up for a vote at city council

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

A new neighborhood project on 28th and Harrison will move forward - despite some concerns from neighbors. 

At Monday night's city council meeting - approved the five re-lot subdivision for Evergreen Gardens, which is located off of 28th and Harrison. One major concern neighbors voiced was concern that more houses would also mean more traffic for the area - something 5th ward alderman Jennifer Lepper is well aware of. "Traffic I know is a big concern on 28th and Harrison, we've been discussing this with neighbors for years and that's why we're looking into doing something different at Harrison and 24th Street, because that intersection causes some of the issues with the traffic flow," she said.

Also at council - aldermen approved spending  over $8000 for construction and installation of a water main extension for Hickory Pointe, and they also agreed to pay over $23,000 to repair the elevator at city hall.
