GIBSON CITY — Gibson City could gain a four-unit apartment building if the city approves a zoning change.
Corey Christensen, who owns a four-unit building at 411 W. 10th St., wants to build another apartment building at 421 W. 10th St., and asked for a related zoning change.
“The building would be a mirror image of one that’s there,” Christensen said.
The two-bedroom, 900-square-foot units would take more than a year to complete.
The existing apartments are leased with a waiting list, Christensen said. “There seems to be a need for more apartments."
The proposal must go before the planning commission.
“It sounds like a good idea,” Alderman Nelda Jordan said.
City Attorney Marc Miller said the process could take six to eight weeks.
In an unrelated matter, a council committee plans to discuss summer work planned for Lott Boulevard.
Mayor Dan Dickey said the city will poll the residents living on the street to gather their opinions on whether to remove the median.
