QUINCY -- Aldermen agreed to allow a church to build at 1705 N. 36th on Tuesday during a brief meeting of the Quincy City Council.
Calvary Tabernacle Church plans to buy a 7.33-acre tract on the west side of North 36th between the U.S. post office and the Quincy Humane Society. The property is zoned for planned industrial use. A special-use permit request was endorsed by the Quincy Plan Commission last week, and the City Council has final say on the project.
Aldermen also voted to allow a special-use permit for a woodworking and furniture manufacturing shop at 4801 State. An ordinance also will be drafted to allow commercial zoning at 721 Locust, which is now zoned for residential uses.
Police Chief Rob Copley also swore in Thomas Damon as the newest member of the Quincy Police Department.
