Public Hearing Scheduled for Enterprise Zone Application

Galesburg, IL (December 2, 2014) The City of Galesburg will be holding a public hearing concerning an application to request the creation of a new enterprise zone.

The City’s current enterprise zone expires on July 1, 2016, and the term cannot be extended. The State of Illinois has authorized the designation of new enterprise zones.

The purpose of the public hearing is to provide information to the general public regarding the City’s enterprise zone application and to obtain comments and suggestions from interested citizens regarding this application. During the public hearing time will be provided to discuss and provide input regarding the following specific areas:

  1. Whether to create the enterprise zone;
  2. What the boundaries of the enterprise zone should be; and
  3. What local plans, tax incentives and other programs should be established in connection with the enterprise zone.


Information regarding the proposed enterprise zone application, including a proposed boundary map and proposed list of incentives, can be obtained from the Community Development Department, second floor of City Hall, 55 West Tompkins Street, Galesburg, IL, telephone 309-345-3619.
