|Second Community Visioning Session Tonight -- LIVE COVERAGE ON WGIL AND WGIL.COM
|Two key areas for the city of Galesburg -- which can also be crucial to economic development -- are the subject of the second out of six town hall-type meetings the city is hosting.
Transporation and infrastructure are the topics of Thursday night's Galesburg "Community Visioning Session" -- and is a discussion partially featuring the group the city is ending a partnership with that led to these discussions. The forum will be led by Galesburg-Regional Economic Development Association Vice President for operations Dick Johnson.
A panel discussion on industrial development, transportation, and infrastructure needs, the city says, will include representatives from the Galesburg Sanitary District and the city's Public Works Department, local real estate agent Kit Wilcox, who also sits on GREDA's board. Burlington Northern Santa Fe Terminal Superintendent Rick Danielson will also be a part of the discussion, as will Derby Industries Regional Director Darryl Phillips. Derby operates a distribution center in Galesburg.
Thursday night's schedule is expected to be similar to last week's: a 45-minute panel discussion, followed by about 45-minutes for break-out sessions, followed by a summary of group ideas.
The Visioning Session starts at six o'clock at the Crist Student Center on the campus of Carl Sandburg College. We'll bring you the panel discussion live starting at six tonight on AM 1400 WGIL and on the "Special Events Live Audio" link at WGIL.com. We'll post the panel discussion and the summary online at WGIL.com as well.
